Helaba’s Sustainability Team has a wide variety of tasks: it formulates the sustainability strategy, develops and updates the sustainability principles, and is responsible for maintaining a dialogue with the sustainability rating agencies. It takes part in both ongoing and new sustainability projects of the Bank, e.g. sharpening the focus of sustainability-related aspects of the credit risk strategy and broadening the scope of sustainability reporting. Beyond that, the team bears responsibility for analysing regulatory developments relating to sustainability, e.g. assessing the consequences of the EU’s Financing Sustainable Growth action plan on the Bank and submitting corresponding proposals for implementation.
