Corporate responsibility
and responsibility for the community have always been part of the cooperative banks’ corporate mission. As the central bank for the Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken, we feel particularly committed to this responsibility. That is why we are committed: with a clear approach, with our own consistent actions and with proven expertise for our customers.

Our commitment to sustainability

Acting responsibly is a key objective for us and is part of the way cooperative institutions see themselves. With our commitment to sustainability, we want to give our customers and business partners a binding pledge regarding DZ BANK's dedication to this field and reaffirm the level of ambition we are striving for.
