At a Glance

As a bank with extensive operations across Asia, it is important for us to manage our environmental footprint. This is especially critical because the Asian market that we operate in is experiencing tremendous growth. As DBS continues to grow its franchise, we are committed to conducting our business sustainably by incorporating environmental and social considerations.

We incorporate sustainable design and sustainable principles across all our physical spaces – from buildings to retail branches. We actively adopt energy efficiency enhancements (e.g. LED lightings and enhanced building control) in our operations. We have been pursuing certifications that incorporate best practices in environmental design, construction and environmentally friendly building technologies. We also organise activities throughout the year to enhance staff awareness and engagement on sustainability.

RE100 Commitment

DBS is the first Asian bank and Singapore company to join the global renewable energy initiative, RE100. DBS has committed to utilising 100% renewable energy in all our markets, with an interim target of 100% in Singapore by 2030.
