SEB in the Society
As a bank, SEB forms an important part of society. SEB’s activities are based upon the long-term confidence of its customers, employees and society. One of SEB’s overriding goals is to be a good member of society in those countries in which the Group operates.
SEB shall stand for good ethics and contribute to sustainable development. The basis of this work consists of SEB’s common values: Continuity, Commitment, Professionalism and Mutual respect.
In December 2003, SEB’s Board of Directors adopted a Policy for Corporate Social Responsibility for the Group. SEB’s social policy means taking long-term responsibility in the day-to-day work both for ethical issues that have a direct impact on SEB’s customers’ business and for the employees as well as social responsibility in a broader perspective. The policy furthermore means that SEB supports the nine principles of the Global Compact of the UN and the OECD guidelines for multinational companies.
The following areas of priority mirror SEB’s commitment to corporate social responsibility.
