Asia's best bank for corporate responsibility 2020: DBS

Awards for Excellence 2020

It is hard to find a bank with greater integrity than DBS. Its commitment to responsible banking, sustainable finance, running a responsible business and creating social impact are obvious; and this year it wins the award for Asia’s best bank for corporate responsibility. 

Last year, the bank announced that it will cease financing new coal-fired power plants in any market. In recent months the bank has piloted a set of rules to ensure any deal or service is labelled correctly. 

Under chief sustainability officer Mikkel Larsen, DBS has also worked with the Impact Institute in Amsterdam on the social and natural capital impacts of the palm oil and electric vehicle industries to better understand how it should finance these sectors.
