CSR — or Corporate Social Responsibility — is a voluntary approach to running a business with a concern for sustainable development and is defined by Luxembourg’s national institute for sustainable development and corporate responsibility (INDR), as
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
“Development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.”
Non-financial report 2021
Banque Raiffeisen, the country’s leading cooperative financial institution, has published its second non-financial report. It is a key document highlighting the Bank’s sustainability strategy. Banque Raiffeisen aligns its initiatives with the “Sustainable Development Goals”, which address the needs of society to protect natural and economic resources, ensure environmental preservation and work towards a better ecological transition.
Raiffeisen, naturally responsible
Banque Raiffeisen's ambition is to offer high quality products and services while building strong and lasting relationships with all its stakeholders, shareholders, customers and partners.
From the very beginning, the principle of sustainability has been an inherent part of the cooperative bank's DNA.
Interview with Yves Biewer Sustainability at Banque Raiffeisen
For Banque Raiffeisen, contributing positively to sustainability and thus to the welfare of its members and customers is a given.
ESG is a concept that is closely related to CSR. The acronym ‘ESG’ stands for Environmental, Social and Governance criteria, which allow for a company’s extra-financial analysis.
With these criteria, it is possible to find out whether a company implements a socially responsible strategy, and, in particular, how it behaves towards the environment and its stakeholders, in other words its employees, partners, contractors and customers.
Being in the heart of society is tantamount to bearing responsibility towards preserving our environment and what we pass on to future generations, not only in terms of ecology, but also in terms of societal values.
Raiffeisen allows each of its employees to reconcile professional and personal welfare.

In collaboration with the ABBL, Raiffeisen Bank was once again keen to support and take part in the ‘Woch vun Suen’ (money week). This event is aimed at raising preschool and primary school students’ awareness of money management in many schools across the country.
As part of its health fortnight which took place in October 2019, the Bank invited its employees to practical workshops and conferences on health and well-being at work. The purpose was to raise their awareness of good practices in the context of their jobs and workplace.
