IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EQUATOR PRINCIPLES

The Sustainability Affairs team at Credit Suisse, comprising dedicated specialists, provides global coverage to the business on Equator Principles transactions, as well as other transactions that entail potential sustainability risks. Sustainability Affairs is responsible for training and advising the business on the appropriate application of the Equator Principles and wider sustainability risk management procedures and policies, ensuring that the appropriate actions are undertaken, and broadly ensuring that the bank meets its commitments under the Equator Principles.

Our sector policies and guidelines require the submission of Equator Principle transactions to Sustainability Affairs for review. These policies and guidelines also require that, where there are significant environmental and social issues associated with a transaction, the business escalates the prospective transaction to our Reputational Risk Review Process, for consideration by members of senior management. Senior management also holds the business accountable for implementation of our sector policies and guidelines.

In 2016, 225 Credit Suisse employees received training on sustainability risk management which includes training on the Equator Principles where relevant.
