Sustainability is a fundamental corporate principle of LGT. We are helping to protect the environment and reduce climate change in a number of ways. In all our actions, we are reliant on employees who identify with our values and who make a long-term commitment to our clients, our company and society and the environment.
Our commitments to doing business sustainably can be broken down into the three classic sustainability areas of Governance (G), Social (S) and Environment (E).
Our principles for environmentally friendly operational management and climate protection are laid down in the LGT Code of Conduct. They include using natural resources efficiently, improving our operations to reduce energy consumption and taking measures to help prevent climate change.
Both our employees and the company itself are committed in numerous areas and at numerous levels to the positive, sustainable development of society.
For LGT, responsible and effective corporate governance is a key component in, and an essential requirement for gaining and reinforcing the trust of clients and employees and also that of the company’s owner and other stakeholders.
The LGT Code of Conduct – our shared system of values
Our business policy is based on performance, professionalism, fairness and high ethical standards. Our Code of Conduct specifies a minimum standard that we must meet even in cases where national legislation is less strict. The LGT Code of Conduct lays down the ethical and professional standards for all employees as well as for members of the Foundation Board and the Board of Directors.
