The responsible bank

As a cooperative bank, it is in our DNA to be ethical and responsible.

Established in Luxembourg since 1925, Raiffeisen is the first cooperative bank and does not aim to maximise profits but works first and foremost in the interest of its customers and members who, thanks to OPERA and OPERA PLUS, can benefit from a wide range of advantages.

Banque Raiffeisen can rely on its network of branches throughout the country and all its advisors in order to offer them a uniquely local experience.

Interview with Guy Hoffmann Sustainability at Banque Raiffeisen

A sustainable strategy based on our cooperative values

As Luxembourg’s first cooperative financial group, Raiffeisen aims to meet the needs of its customers and their economic and social environment.

Our members and customers have privileged access to our OPERA and OPERA PLUS offers, giving them access to a wide range of advantages. This allows us to build strong and lasting relationships.

Sustainable investments

Responsible investments are for people who not only invest their money, but also contribute to a more responsible future, thus laying the foundation for sustainable development.

 

 

Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments

In line with its corporate social responsibility commitments as a cooperative company, Banque Raiffeisen promotes social inclusion, civic responsibility and environmental protection day after day.

Our sustainable labels

28 November 2019, Signatory of UNEP FI PRB

Banque Raiffeisen has become an official Signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) – a single framework for a sustainable banking industry developed through an innovative partnership between banks worldwide and United Nations Environment’s Finance Initiative. 

The Principles for Responsible Banking set out the banking industry’s role and responsibility in shaping a sustainable future and in aligning the banking sector with the objectives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. They also, importantly, enable a bank to embed sustainability across all its business areas, and to identity where it has the potential to make the most impact in its contributions to a sustainable world. They also position a bank to leverage new business opportunities with the emergence of the sustainable development economy.

For me, responsibility is a matter of generations. In view of developments in recent years in terms of both businesses and the economy as a whole, I think that committing ourselves to sustainability is no longer an option, but an obligation.
In my view, a sustainable approach is reflected in 3 fields: the company itself, the offer made to the customer and the work environment provided to employees.
Cooperative banks have always had sustainability in their DNA and this also applies to Banque Raiffeisen here in Luxembourg. Being responsible is very important to us and we have all the prerequisites to shoulder the responsibilities we have towards the economy, society and the environment.
