Sustainability project & key metrics

With international business activities and a long track record of economic success, we make a valuable contribution to society. To safeguard this performance contribution and secure our long-term business development – in every market situation – we want to further align our corporate culture and corporate strategy with ethical, social and environmental values.

The Board of Managing Directors decided to entrust David Goring-Thomas, Member of the Board of Managing Directors whose responsibilities include the Aviation Finance and Land Transport Finance divisions, with the matter. An internal project team was mandated, comprising Group Compliance, Group Corporate Communications, Group Human Resources, Group Legal and Transaction Management staff.

Within this project work, we aim at raising further awareness among our colleagues for specific social and environmental questions, and better integrating these issues into our corporate culture and strategy, in 2016 and beyond. In pursuit of this goal, we will develop a customised, holistic sustainability programme that will allow us to strengthen existing activities and identify new ones.  

So far on our sustainability journey, we have reached the following early milestones: in October 2015, we launched a co-operation with aireg, Aviation Initiative for Renewable Energy in Germany e.V., and in early 2016 we adopted Corporate Citizenship Framework .

The next milestones include a commitment to the German Sustainability Code – we plan to deliver the mandatory declaration of conformity in 2016–2017.

These are DVB’s key sustainability metrics:
