Sustainability at Banco ABC

 

We at Banco ABC Brasil work towards building a fairer and more sustainable society. In pursuit of that goal, we take action on three key fronts:

 

• Support for stakeholders with related issues, for example, by providing innovative sustainability solutions.


• Improving our risk management by further deepening our analysis of sustainability-related issues.

 

• Finding and seizing business opportunities to build up an institution that is both viable and sustainable, thus balancing a short-term pragmatism with a long-term ambition.

 

 

We use ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) parameters to inform our best environmental, social and governance practices. That way, we contribute to the sustainable development of our business.

In addition, we are continuously at work on imparting more transparency to our ESG practices and management.
