Growing a sustainable business

At OCBC, our purpose is to help individuals and businesses across communities achieve their aspirations by providing innovative financial services that meet their needs today and tomorrow.

Our sustainability framework

We strive to achieve our five sustainability pillars which define our most important priorities as an organisation

Supporting the sustainable development goals (SDGs)

We have selected five focus SDGs, where we can make the biggest contribution to sustainable development in the markets where we operate.

Sustainability governance

To achieve our aspirations and embed responsible and sustainable practices into our business, a robust governance structure is important.

Materiality assessment

We focus our strategies and efforts on the material sustainability risks and opportunities that reflect our most significant impacts and are of greatest importance to our key stakeholders.

Stakeholder engagement

We carry out a regular basis of engagement with our stakeholders at every level of the business to understand their expectations and interests.

Responsible and sustainable financing

The growing threat of climate change and the urgent need for sustainable development pose both business opportunities and responsibilities to manage the risks for OCBC.

Sustainability report

We aim to demonstrate transparency and accountability to our stakeholders with our annual sustainability report.

Through our report, we hope to be responsive to stakeholders’ interests and concerns, in order to build mutual understanding, trust and respect. For more information on our sustainability efforts and performance relating to each of our material ESG factors:
