The leading sustainability rating agency in the German-speaking region ISS-ESG (formerly oekom research), has once again awarded DZ HYP with the "Prime Status" in the comparison group "Financials/Mortgage & Public Sector Finance" for its sustainability efforts.As in the previous year, the bank was rated with a "C", which means that its environmental, social and economic sustainability performance is above the industry average. This is also confirmed by the so-called "Decile Rank". On a scale of 1 (very good) to 10 (very poor), this indicator shows how a company's sustainability performance is to be assessed relative to its competitors. Here, DZ HYP was rated in the top third of its peer group with a "2".
The good results in the areas of "employees" in the sustainability rating are particularly noteworthy. At the same time, the sustainability rating agency sees potential for further optimisation in the areas of "eco-efficiency" and "products". Particularly improvements in the product area can increase the overall rating and contribute to maintaining DZ HYP's prime status in the long term.
