Strategic themes

More than ten years ago, we joined the United Nations Global Compact. As part of our continuing commitment, we support the Sustainable Development Goals and have chosen to focus on three strategic themes to maximize the impact of our efforts. On this page, you can read more about our three strategic themes and how we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals

The SDGs call for action from every one of us. Countries, companies and civil society have to put forth their best effort for the world to reach these challenging goals. We contribute to a variety of the goals but have chosen to advance Quality Education, Decent Work & Economic Growth as well as Climate Action in particular. By focusing on these three goals, we make our expertise available for the benefit of the generations to come and support the societal transition towards a more sustainable economy.

Digitalisation is transforming the financial infrastructure and increases the need for developing a sound and safe understanding of digital money and IT security. Therefore, we have a strategic focus on educating people and businesses in order to make them financially confident and secure and thus supporting the Sustainable Development Goal number 4.
