Helaba awarded Prime Status by oekom research

In March 2018, Helaba was given a new rating by oekom research, a rating agency for sustainable investment.

For the first time, the bank’s corporate rating was awarded Prime Status for out­standing sustain­ability perfor­mance in this segment. With a “C” grade on a scale from “D” to “A+”, Helaba was placed in the top quarter of a peer group consi­sting of 89 banks worldwide. It has thus consoli­dated its position among the leading financial insti­tutions in the area of sustain­ability.
“This distinction under­lines our sustainable business strategy and confirms the success of our project, launched at the beginning of 2017, to improve the Group’s sustain­ability profile across all business lines. With the publi­cation of the Code of Conduct as well as the expansion in our risk strategies to include sustain­ability criteria, we have successfully implemented key elements of this project. We are delighted with the rating result and will continue to develop our sustain­ability profile in 2018 as well”, explained Herbert Hans Grüntker, the Chairman of Helaba’s Board of Managing Directors.
