Sustainability

We have high environmental and climate protection standards – both for ourselves and for our financings. We believe business activities and social responsibility go hand in hand.

Portrait Klaus R. Michalak

"Sustainability is one of our bank's core values. We finance in particular companies and projects that implement innovative technologies of the future and advance the global transformation to a sustainable and climate-neutral society. For us it is both a motivation and a challenge to use our possibilities as a project and export finance bank to help create a liveable future."
Klaus R. Michalak, CEO of KfW IPEX-Bank and in charge of sustainability
