Commitments to our communities

We believe that as a bank, we have an important role to play in supporting our communities and society, and as such, we also seek to contribute above and beyond our core activities. The Corporate Citizenship & Foundations (CCF) team works with selected partner organizations, provides funding through our global and regional foundations1 and facilitates the sharing of professional expertise to catalyze social innovation, enable inclusive futures and support those in need. We do so in the communities where we live and work, as well as further afield, to overcome the social and economic inequalities that place young people and communities worldwide at a disadvantage – thus supporting the realization of the UN SDGs.

1 The Credit Suisse foundations are not consolidated into Credit Suisse Group AG.

We strive to make effective use of our social and financial capital to have a positive impact not only on society but also on employees and our core business and our bank. In 2021, we maintained our support for our long-term partners and initiatives while also developing responses and mechanisms to help them and others cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and its long-term impacts.
