Sustainability

Sustainability is one of KfW's primary business targets. As a bank committed to responsibility it is promoting environmental and climate protection worldwide. But KfW is also committed to social responsibility and is engaged in an intense dialogue with its stakeholders. Good corporate governance plays an important role and it goes without saying that sustainability principles are also applied in-house. If you are interested, you will find more information on this topic in our newly revised sustainability portal.
