The entire Helaba Group is committed to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact. It therefore pledges to protect human and labour rights, to reject forced and child labour as well as corruption and to support environmentally-friendly technologies in the scope of its entire business activities.
In addition, we are committed to observing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the core labour standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) as well as the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
Our business strategy contains a clear commitment to protecting the climate.
We consistently push for adherence to rules and regulations on a local, national and international level. In case legal rules contradict each other or if stricter or more comprehensive rules apply in day-to-day business, in general the stricter rules must be applied.
Violations of the law may damage the company, our employees as well as our customers and jeopardise the bank’s reputation. Our risk-based compli-ance management system, which is focused on prevention, ensures that – where possible - any violations are avoided from the outset.
