How we work

Working in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner is an integral part of KfW's promotional mandate. And the same requirements that we apply in our financing also apply to us – both as an employer and on the capital markets.

  • We ensure that we are a responsible and attractive employer, from offering further training to providing an inclusive workplace and enabling a work-life balance.
  • We aim to achieve the greatest sustainable impact possible in our financing and promotional activity; and our capital market presence is also guided by the concept of sustainability. Our efforts include a strong focus on developing the green bond market.
