Evolving our organization to support sustainability

We are committed to becoming a leader in sustainability in the financial industry across our Wealth Management-related and Investment Bank franchises. With this in mind, Credit Suisse launched an enhanced organization structure in 2020 to ensure that ESG standards are embedded across regions and divisions in our client-based solutions as well as in our own operations as a company.

Building on our progress in the last few years, we announced the launch of our unique Executive Board-level function Sustainability, Research & Investment Solutions (SRI) in July 2020. We believe this organization will allow us to drive a globally consistent approach and to meet the evolving needs of our clients, investors, employees and society in general.

Through the launch of SRI, we have brought together our existing ESG activities, our CIO investment capabilities, our research teams and our branding and marketing activities under one umbrella in order to better deliver superior sustainable investment advice and solutions to our clients. Further, a new group entitled Sustainability Strategy, Advisory & Finance (SSAF) was established to support the creation of a cohesive and dedicated sustainability offering within SRI and across the bank.
