Our ESG approach

Our ESG approach

Doing business sustainably is the key to long term success of all of our stakeholders. Therefore, the sustainable value creation is at the core of our decision-making and how we steer the Bank. We do not pursue a separate ESG strategy, as we view it as an integral part of our overall business strategy and this is also aligned on how we have embedded ESG across the organization.

1) Management Board remuneration: During 2020, there has been a shift from “other” to “fixed salaries”. Therefore a year-over-year comparison would only be representative when considering all parts of the fixed remuneration for both years.
2) “Shareholding guidelines for Management Board members”: There is a minimum regulatory retention period of 1 year following vesting, which applies in respect to any shares granted as remuneration. Furthermore, BAWAG’s internal rules provide for the Management Board to hold at least 50% of their LTIP shares until the end of their tenor.
