Climate protection and the related raising of awareness are of particular concern to us. The Raiffeisen organisations, together with their affiliated companies, represent a sustainable business and social model. In this way, we strive to achieve a reasonable balance between an innovative, strongly competitive market economy, social responsibility and responsibility for the environment. Elements such as developing various activities in the field of climate protection, increasing the efficiency of the energy we use, recycling and the use of renewable resources therefore got underway at an early stage.
In 2007, RZB Supervisory Board President Christian Konrad launched the Raiffeisen Climate Protection Initiative (Raiffeisen Klimaschutz-Initiative, RKI). The RKI is a common platform, service and representative facility for all activities of its members of the Raiffeisen companies in the areas of climate protection, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility. For this purpose, the RKI advises her members on conception, transformation, realisation and communication of measures for these topics.
As founding members of the RKI, the RZB AG and the RBI AG do what they can to best meet the requirements of climate protection in the sense of the principle of conducting responsibly aware business and also makes substantial contributions to protecting the climate.
