ESG & Sustainability
"Committed to our goal to have a long-lasting, positive impact on our society and the environment"
Hellenic Bank is committed to sustainable business and development by combining financial performance with environmental and social responsibility and implementing sound governance practices. We take relevant Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles into consideration when evaluating business risks and opportunities in connection to investment and financing, as we believe this will add value to our customers.
We aim to be at the forefront of social change and green transition, drafting a long-term sustainability strategy, embedding ESG factors in our risk framework and improving transparency because we recognise the importance of being purpose-driven leaders, contributing to a more equitable and sustainable society.
We are guided by our long-term ambitions for sustainability and corporate responsibility for the sustainability aspects under each of four ESG strategic pillars below.
We consider the financial sector to be a major player with regards to achieving Sustainable Development. Therefore, we have mapped our sustainability aspects with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly.
The 17 SDGs are global, universal and interconnected, providing a common language, both to governments and businesses, for contributing to solving these challenges, while generating new business opportunities. Each of these 17 United Nations SDGs has specific targets that need to be achieved by 2030.
Our ESG impact for 2021 is highlighted below. For more information refer to our latest ESG Impact report.
