Our ESG priorities
Our ESG priorities
Novobanco guides its operations by principles of sustainability and with the firm purpose of contributing positively to the entire ecosystem in which it operates. To manage its business in a fair and responsible manner, the bank has been implementing a culture of continuous monitoring of its impact on the community, training and raising awareness among employees, partners and customers, while maintaining the principles and policies that guide its performance.
With the objective of reassessing the material issues and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the novobanco Group carried out a consultation with its different stakeholders, incorporating the contributions of its customers, employees, investors, suppliers, non-governmental organizations, and decision-making bodies of the novobanco Group, having defined the material Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Based on this consultation, the strategy, commitments and ESG objectives (Environment, Social and Governance) were structured in 3 pillars that reflect the way in which the Group addresses the material issues and SDGs identified by its various stakeholders.
