Sustainability ratings

Our sustainability performance has been assessed by major sustainability rating agencies and included in major indices for many years. These assessments are an important decision-making tool for SRI investors. For us, sustainability ratings and rankings provide a benchmark against our peers and help us to further improve our own sustainability management process and our transparency to our stakeholders.

In the most relevant sustainability ratings and external evaluations, Deutsche Bank’s performance and reporting placed us in a high position. One of our successes was the achievement of the full score of 100 in the disclosure score of CDP.

Despite our achievements, rating agencies continue to criticize the gap between our sustainability commitments and our actions.
