Scope of the report

This report forms an integral part of our Annual Reporting Suite and focuses on the financial year 2021. It provides an overview of our sustainability commitments as well as the key governance structures, measures and programs in place to put these into practice.

The report also presents the main 2021 achievements and results against our aspirations. We are proud to present the progress we have made in implementing the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and the Principles for Responsible Banking, including the measures we have put in place to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.

Moreover, in line with Credit Suisse’s support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), this report also provides transparency on the progress we have made in addressing significant risks and opportunities arising from climate change.

Finally, Credit Suisse discloses in this report for the first time information pursuant to the WEF IBC Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics, in addition to continuing to report according to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standards and the GRI Standards, underscoring again our commitment to enhanced transparency and disclosure.

If not otherwise indicated, the information reported is valid for Credit Suisse Group AG and its consolidated subsidiaries.

As in previous years, our Sustainability Report 2021 will be submitted to the SIX Swiss Exchange in accordance with the opting-in regulation for companies issuing sustainability reports.
