Sustainability Strategy

CGD’s activity is oriented towards sustainably generating value for its stakeholders, based on economic, social and environmental responsibility principles.

The 2018/2020 Sustainability Strategy addresses six fundamental areas of intervention: Responsible Business, Social Responsibility, Environmental Footprint, Ethics and Compliance, Risk Management and Stakeholder Engagement.

The Sustainability Strategy is implemented through an annual action plan involving the entire institution, across several Departments (e.g.: Risk, Rating, Compliance, Facilities Management, Human Resources, Sustainability, Communication and Marketing). The strategic plan is regularly assessed and presented to the Sustainability Committee.

The 2018/2020 Sustainability Strategy was based on a total of 118 initiatives, becoming the key document that monitors the performance of the Sustainability Strategy, according to:

  • CGD Strategic Plan;
  • International principles & standards (e.g.: UNEP-FI);
  • Sustainability risks and opportunities;
  • Challenges of the financial sector and the expectations of stakeholders.

 

In 2020, the implementation of the Sustainability Strategy was overall achieved with a 94% degree of completion, mainly due to the following six lines of action:

Responsible Business

89%

Social Responsibility

95%

Environmental Footprint

100%

Ethics and Compliance

Risk Management

Stakeholder Engagement

With the completion of the 2018/2020 Sustainability Strategy and its subsequent analysis, CGD contribution to sustainable development has evolved over time.
