Sustainability at DZ HYP.
Cooperative. Social. Ecological.
As thinking and acting sustainably grows in importance, it will have a determining influence on DZ HYP’s future. With social and political initiatives, the focus of attention in sustainability is changing constantly. We are looking forward to actively participating and jointly working on continuing the Bank’s stable development and forward-looking approach.
DZ HYP publishes Sustainability Report 2019
Sustainability across the board
Jörg Hermes has been a member of DZ HYP’s Management Board since 1 April 2020. He is responsible for Finance, Compliance, IT and Organisation & Operations, Internal Audit, and Human Resources. In addition, the topic and organisation of sustainability is another of his tasks. During this interview he shares some insights into DZ HYP’s understanding of sustainability, and explains what sustainability means to him personally.
Demographic management at DZ HYP
A shortage of skilled workers, retirement of the baby-boomer generation, digitalisation and the younger generation’s new demands present HR with great challenges. However, we see demographic change and the race for qualified specialists and executives as opportunities. Our answer to these changes is our new demographic concept.
Refurbishment of our offices
A comprehensive renovation and refurbishment programme is currently underway at our head offices in Hamburg and Münster. Once completed, the buildings will have been thoroughly modernised, have a better environmental performance and allow more flexibility in the use of workplaces. According to a preliminary assessment by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), both offices will be certified.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals
At a summit in 2015, all UN Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At the heart of this Agenda are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”), ambitious goals to secure a universal development that is sustainable for the economy, the environment and for society. DZ HYP is willing and able to do its part.
Another award for DZ HYP
DZ HYP did it again. For the fifth time, the Bank as a brand was the most convincing to the jury of the Real Estate Brand Award, which named DZ HYP the strongest brand of 2020 in the Banking category, Trustworthiness, client service and intent to reuse were cited as the main performance criteria. Prizes were awarded on 28 May, at a high-profile event that was streamed live.
