Operational commitment for the benefit of society
We are part of society and as such are networked with our environment in many ways. For us, taking responsibility here means addressing societal developments and social challenges and participating in their solution. We make our contribution in numerous projects and initiatives that we have launched together with partners from politics, business and society. Because we are convinced that only together can we successfully meet the challenges now and in the future.
Cooperation with museums
Commerzbank has given major works of art from the former stock of Dresdner Bank on permanent loan to support museums nationwide, including the Städel Museum Frankfurt, the Nationalgalerie Berlin, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden and the Städtische Galerie Dresden. The aim is to make the works of internationally renowned artists available to a broad public in a scholarly context. To this end, Commerzbank has added a generous financial donation to each of the loan collections to support the cultural institutions in their important work.
In order to promote international trade in certain countries, mainly in emerging markets, supranational development aid banks such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD, London), the Asian Development Bank (ADB, Manila), the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB, Washington) and the International Finance Cooperation (IFC, Washington) have set up special trade facilitation programs.
Commerzbank has been actively cooperating with all major development banks in the area of financial institutions for many years. The Trade Facilitation Programs primarily support small and medium-sized enterprises in their global trading activities.
