Environment and climate strategy

We accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy that promotes sustainable development and is socially inclusive

For CaixaBank, it is essential to drive the sustainable transition by guiding companies, individuals and society as a whole towards a carbon-neutral economy that promotes sustainable development.

Environmental protection is one of our strategic priorities and we have an Environmental Strategy with the aim of contributing to this transition by financing and investing in sustainable projects, managing environmental and climate risk and reducing the direct impact of our operations.

Our model

Environmental management

Financial institutions have a key role to play in achieving the targets of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals, and that is why we implement our commitment directly through our own operations and indirectly through our relationships with clients, investees, business partners and the value chain as a whole.

We are a CDP Climate Change Leader thanks to our contribution to combat climate change on a global scale. CaixaBank is the only Spanish bank on the A List.

At CaixaBank we work with the aim of contributing to the transition to a carbon neutral economy by financing and investing in sustainable projects and supporting the sustainable transition of our customers.

More on sustainable business

Our commitment to environmental sustainability is set out in our Sustainability Principles and Code of Ethics and Business Principles, and is further developed in our Sustainability strategy.

CaixaBank has also strengthened the sustainability governance framework by adapting the strategy control, oversight and implementation bodies with robust governance on sustainability risks and climate risk management.
