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.
In line with our objective of being the European benchmark in sustainability, we are the only Spanish bank that has been subject voluntarily to the ESG rating by Sustainable Fitch in its solicited classification, which involves a firmer commitment towards reporting and enables a more in-depth analysis than the unsolicited classification (non-voluntary). Sustainable Fitch has awarded us an ESG Entity Rating of 2 in its August 2023 assessment, one of the highest ratings in the financial sector worldwide.

As a result of our commitment to sustainability, in 2023 CaixaBank was again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), World and Europe, for the twelfth consecutive year.
Being listed in the DJSI means that investors and the main stakeholder groups recognise the company's good performance in terms of sustainability.
In addition, in 2022 we have been included again in the A List of the CDP analyst, a global benchmark that classifies companies according to their carbon footprint management and climate impact. In 2022 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.
