UN initiatives

We are one of the signatory companies of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest CSR and sustainable development initiative, and therefore committed to consistently complying with the ten UNGC principles of responsible business. These principles include the core areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and combating corruption. The concomitant attitude of global responsibility is expected of all staff and managers, as well as of partners and suppliers.

Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) has become an official Signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking – a single framework for a sustainable banking industry developed through an innovative partnership between banks worldwide and United Nations Environment’s Finance Initiative.

“We are very proud to be the first Austrian banking group to commit to the UNEP FI Principles for Responsible Banking. As a long-term member of the UNEP Finance Initiative, we see the signing of these principles as another milestone with regards to our sustainability development. We will therefore further intensify our efforts to strengthen our strategic orientation as a responsible banker. Our goal is to offer sustainable financial products and services to support our clients in their transformation towards a sustainable future and therefore to make also a positive contribution to the society. We see responsible banking as an important element for our future business growth. This is also in line with our Vision 2025 to become the most recommended financial services group in those Central and Eastern European markets in which we operate.”
Johann Strobl, Chief Executive Officer of RBI, 1st February 2021
