OUR SDG COMMITMENTS
With our headquarters in Geneva and offices in 7 countries, we are aware that by doing our share we can make a difference. As a responsible company, we have committed to 8 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) officially established by the United Nations (UN). These goals, expressed below in the form of colored icons, are the United Nations’ call to all people for a sustainable economic growth, taking into consideration the social and environmental aspects of each decision.
We have been committed to green and renewable energy for 10 years as environmental issues have become a priority for us. We have set ourselves the goal of reducing our environmental footprint by optimizing the management of our energy resources and implementing a responsible purchasing policy.
To reduce paper consumption, the quantity of waste and employees’ business trips, CBH is constantly working on digitalizing its infrastructures. Our employees are encouraged to avoid unnecessary printing, to actively participate in waste sorting and paper recycling. Together we aim to reduce our impact on the environment and actively fight against climate change.
We select our team members based only on their skills and achievements. We are well aware that particularly in the financial sector, women’s access to positions of responsibility is challenging, which is why we encourage applications from women and do our utmost to earn our right to be called an equal opportunities employer. CBH is firmly committed to promoting diversity in all its forms as a true factor of growth and development.
OUR EMPLOYEES, OUR STRENGTH
Our employees and their contributions are our greatest asset. We encourage individual initiative and successful teamwork. The spirit of entrepreneurship is embedded in our DNA and shared by all our employees. Our mission is to support our clients and always respond better, faster and with the best solutions to meet their requirements and their needs.
GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
As a committed employer, our responsibility towards our employees is twofold: on the one hand, we strive to put in place the best conditions to improve the company’s performance, and on the other hand, we aim to create a stimulating work environment that contributes to the well-being, fulfilment and professional, as well as human development of each employee. We promote a culture of health at work and at home, and to this end we encourage the search for an optimal work-life balance.
CONSERVATION OF NATURE
We are alarmed by the distress and abandonment of endangered animal species, so we actively support several organizations for the protection of animals and wildlife. Through our commitment, we aim to make our employees and clients aware of the responsibility of mankind with regard to animal life, and particularly wildlife.
SUPPORT FOR THE ARTS
We are committed to being a responsible and committed contributor to the community. As fervent admirers of the arts, patronage is an integral part of our history. For many years now we are collaborating with some of the major players on the local and international arts scene, in the countries where we are present by contributing to various large-scale cultural events. Our aim is to promote creativity and cultural innovation aimed at excellence and to encourage the influence of the artistic community in Switzerland and abroad.
FIGHT AGAINST POVERTY
Well aware that exclusion and poverty are a social scourge that undermines the basis of our life together and concerns us all, we are involved with organizations fighting disability and poverty in Switzerland and in other countries where we are present.
