Responsibility and Corporate Governance

Banks bear a heavy responsibility. Where banks fail to perform their tasks, industry cannot invest and the economy grows more slowly, and ordinary people cannot make big plans. Their dream of owning a home or a business remains only a dream. This applies to a promotional bank in a special way. KfW is aware of its responsibility. Its task is to ensure sustainability and promote public welfare - within Germany and beyond.
