GRI Standards

Our reporting on sustainability addresses the growing importance of ESG disclosure and the increasing stakeholder demand for relevant information in this area.

The Credit Suisse Sustainability Report 2020 has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: “Core option”. The GRI Standards provide a framework for voluntary sustainability reporting, helping to increase transparency and comparability. In line with the GRI Standards, Credit Suisse regularly conducts a materiality assessment to better understand the views and interests of our stakeholders. This report focuses on issues classified as particularly important in the context of the materiality assessment (see p. 92). Selected indicators in our GRI-based disclosure on sustainability are externally assessed and independently assured by SGS. Our Sustainability Report 2020 is reported to the SIX Swiss Exchange in accordance with the opting-in regulation for companies issuing sustainability reports.
