Corporate responsibility

Corporate responsibility contributes to UBS’s goal of sustainable value creation.

As a leading global financial services firm, UBS is confronted with the concerns and expectations of a wide and diverse range of stakeholders. Along with clients, investors and employees, for example, various government regulators and suppliers can also be said to have a stake in the company to varying degrees. In a broader sense, the communities in which UBS has a presence are stakeholders too.

UBS takes the term “corporate responsibility” to mean the process of understanding, assessing, weighing and addressing the concerns and expectations of these groups. This process supports UBS in its efforts to safeguard and advance the firm’s reputation for responsible corporate conduct. In very direct ways, responsible corporate conduct helps create sustainable value for the company.
The crisis faced by the financial services industry made it difficult for the firm to do as much as it would have liked to fulfill its stakeholder expectations. Still, as can be seen from the examples given below – from anti-money laundering to community development and human rights to protecting the environment – UBS continued with a wide range of important and effective corporate responsibility-related activities during 2008. Even in difficult times, UBS remains convinced that corporate responsibility makes good business sense.
