ESG analysts and ratings

CaixaBank's long-term sustainable management model places us among the financial institutions with the best Environmental, Social and Good Governance (ESG) ratings, as recognised by the main rating agencies and sustainability analysts.

In financial markets ESG ratings are the most widely accepted way to obtain information on the sustainability performance of companies and to facilitate responsible investment decisions.

They reflect the actions of companies in the areas of sustainability and responsible management, exposure to non-financial risks and their ability to manage them, the development of the business and its positive impact in social and environmental terms, and questions of corporate governance.

As a result of our commitment to sustainability, in 2021 CaixaBank was again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), World and Europe, for the tenth consecutive year, ranking as the 9th most sustainable bank in the world and the 2nd in Europe.

We obtained scores well above average in the categories of sustainable finance, financial inclusion, climate strategy, human capital development, information security, cybersecurity, business code of conduct and human rights, as well as a maximum score of 100 points in the social and environmental risk management and reporting categories.

CaixaBank included in the 2021 DJSI:

9th bank
(of 24) in DJSI World

2nd bank
(of 9) in DJSI Europe


Being listed in the DJSI means that investors and the main stakeholder groups recognise the company's good performance in terms of sustainability.

We are also the only Spanish bank included in the CDP's A List, a global benchmark that classifies companies according to their carbon footprint management and climate impact. In 2021 CaixaBank obtained an 'A' rating, the best possible, for its Leadership in management and transparency regarding climate change issues, recognising our outstanding performance in the management and measurement of the climate and environmental impacts of our activity.

Through our activities, initiatives and projects, we contribute to preventing and mitigating climate change, to driving the transition to a carbon-neutral economy and to social development, thus strengthening our position in the area of sustainability.

In this way, we meet the expectations of investors who are committed to long-term strategies and include ESG criteria in their investment decisions.
