About Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse is one of the largest global financial service providers. In addition to the three regionally oriented divisions Swiss Universal Bank, International Wealth Management and Asia Pacific, Asset-Management is run as a fourth division.
Credit Suisse was founded as “Schweizer Kreditanstalt” in 1856 by prominent politician, business leader, and pioneer Alfred Escher. The original purpose of the new bank known as SKA was to finance the expansion of the railroad network as well as the further industrialization of Switzerland. Through many decades of growth, a series of mergers and aquisitions, Credit Suisse evolved into the globally active integrated universal bank they are now, providing services in private banking, investment banking, and asset management.
What are the objective for Credit Suisse to launch their own certification system with greenproperty?
The greenproperty certification shows at one glance to which extent ESG criteria were taken into account and implemented in the planning process and operation of a property. For large-scale investors and project managers, this means an upgrade of their property. For private investors looking for sustainable investment options, greenproperty offers a way of orientation.
