Doing business sustainably is one of the bank’s fundamental corporate principals. We contribute to protecting the environment and the climate on many levels. In everything we do, we count on employees who identify with our values and who make a long-term commitment to our clients, our company, society and the environment.
Our commitment to doing business sustainably can be broken down into the three traditional sustainability segments: environment (E), social (S) and governance (G).
LGT has been pursuing prudent environmental and operations management for many years and has already reached a number of important milestones. In our Sustainability Strategy 2025, we have defined further ambitious goals in the areas of mobility, facility management, procurement, digitalization, energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

Satisfied and healthy employees are the most important asset of any company. We strive to offer our employees fair and attractive working conditions and a pleasant work environment. The fact that we succeed in this is evidenced, among other things, by the Top Employer Award that LGT Bank Switzerland and LGT Bank Liechtenstein have received several times.
With our Sustainability Strategy 2025, we have set ourselves further goals for employee development and promotion.
Responsible and effective corporate governance is very important to LGT and essential for gaining and strengthening the trust of clients, employees, the company’s owner and other stakeholders.
Our business policy is based on performance, professionalism and fairness as well as high ethical standards. Our LGT Code of Conduct sets out a minimum standard that we must meet even in cases where national legislation is less strict. The LGT Code of Conduct sets out binding ethical and professional standards for all employees as well as the Foundation Board and Board of Directors.
