Credit Suisse has enrolled in both the ESI Monitor Community Champion Award and Environmental Business Operations Award

We are excited to announce that Credit Suisse AG Guernsey Branch has begun working towards accreditation in two ESI Monitor Awards; the Community Champion Award, and the Environmental Business Operations Award

At the end of 2019, Credit Suisse Guernsey held a vote for the staff to decide whether to commit, as a business, to the ESI Monitor Awards. The staff were overwhelmingly in favour! This shows an appreciation across all levels of the business for a transition towards sustainability, so congratulations to them!

 

Community Champion Award

ESI Monitor has developed a simple and effective way for businesses to demonstrate their commitment, and the contribution they make, to the community they operate in. Accredited businesses are listed in our directory as having surpassed our threshold. They will receive the award and quarterly benchmarking data on their performance compared to other businesses in their own industry, as well as interesting comparisons to other industries.

The aim of the award is to reward those businesses that contribute most and encourage other businesses to attain higher standards. Major adoption will see a significant increase in contributions from the business community to the third sector.

Private data, as shown in the table below, is be provided quarterly for individual businesses to judge their performance and make choices about future contributions. If required, the data can be used to provide regulatory, government, suppliers, customers, staff and relevant parties with independently verified data on their contribution to the community.

●  actively plans its energy conservation, waste management, and procurement strategy;
