Responsible Business Practices

We believe in doing the right thing by our people and embedding environmental and societal factors in our business operations.

Key to this is this notion of creating trust. We believe that for a society to flourish, corporates and communities must build strong ties based on a foundation of trust, and this can only be done on principles of transparency and fairness.

Sustainable Operations

As a bank with extensive operations, it is important for us to manage our environmental footprint and build a strong and reliable supply chain for sustainable operations.

Managing our Environmental Footprint

DBS has achieved carbon neutrality at the end of 2022 in our own operations. We are creating innovative workspaces that generate their own renewable energy and rapidly transitioning to low-energy systems.

Sustainable Procurement

We ensure that our partners and wider ecosystem are on the same journey as DBS. We are mindful of who we choose to work with and require our suppliers to commit to and adhere to our DBS’ Sustainable Sourcing Principles.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Embracing diversity allows us to tap into a wider talent pool and have a multiplicity of views and perspectives. Being intentional in providing equal opportunities for our employees is important to help us realise the full potential of our collective human capital.

Embracing diversity and inclusion is an important enabler for DBS to attract the best people, build the best teams and produce the best work.

In line with our DBS PRIDE! values, we hire based on merit, competencies and organisational fit, regardless of gender, race, religion or physical attributes.

This policy supplements our commitments found in our Modern Slavery Statement and is part of our ongoing effort to enhance disclosures.
