Sustainability at Credendo

Tree

Corporate sustainability is very important for Credendo. We conduct our business in a manner that is socially responsible and forward-looking, taking into consideration our impact on the environment, on society, on the economy, on our stakeholders and on our people. We pay attention to the sustainability of our own activity (direct impact) and to the sustainability of the transactions we support (indirect impact).These considerations are also reflected in our governance. We go further than our legal obligations to act sustainably as a corporation.

Our respect for human rights and environmental sustainability, our fight against corruption and our commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are not only part of the corporate mission and values of Credendo, but are also integrated in our strategy and summarised in the tagline: ‘We want to grow and improve in a sustainable way’.

Credendo continuously strives to provide its services with full due diligence and professionalism, with respect for honesty and business ethics, and compliance with any laws, rules, regulations and best practices pertaining to our sector. All Credendo entities share the same values of Customer Intimacy, Reliability and Respect.
