In order to regularly review our progress in terms of sustainability, we collect the appropriate data and analyse it on an annual basis as of 31 December. The focus is particularly on non-financial personnel and environmental indicators.
Helaba is required by law to report the material impact of its business activities on the environment and society. In our non-financial statement, which is part of the Group management report in Helaba's annual financial report, we describe our sustainability concepts and have them audited by an external auditor.
In addition, we publish an annual declaration of compliance with the German Sustainability Code (Deutsche Nachhaltigkeitskodex, DNK) and a progress report on the UN Global Compact.
