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 strategy

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

Banking on Net Zero

With a commitment to supporting a low-carbon future, we partner our clients on their transition towards a Net Zero ASEAN and Greater China.

Climate strategy

We recognise that climate change has a significant impact on our planet. We are committed to advancing environmental and social progress as well as conducting our business responsibly.

Sustainability governance

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

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.

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.

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.

Supporting the sustainable development goals (SDGs)

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

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:
