Sustainable workplace & culture

Fostering a sustainable workplace focuses on the physical, structural and cultural working environment that we provide for our employees.  

We have more than 21,000 colleagues and we are committed to creating an engaging, diverse and sustainable workplace in which we maintain a safe and healthy working environment, foster a culture of diversity and reduce our environmental footprint.  

 

Corporate volunteering

Employees at Danske Bank have the opportunity to spend one workday per year to participate in voluntary work. We call it ‘Time to Give’ and our employees are spending their time on e.g. cleaning up the nature, helping boys from vulnerable neighbourhoods kick-starting start-ups, and providing debt counselling for people with debt problems.
