LGT Private Banking Asia Pacific

LGT is a leading international private banking and asset management group that has been fully controlled by the Liechtenstein Princely Family for over 90 years. As at 30 June 2021, LGT managed assets of CHF 275.0 billion (USD 297.4 billion) for wealthy private individuals and institutional clients. LGT employs over 3900 people who work out of more than 20 locations in Europe, Asia, the Americas and the Middle East.

Thinking and acting sustainably is firmly enshrined in our corporate culture. We want to fulfill our social and corporate responsibility, give back to society, use natural resources carefully and contribute to climate protection.

Our sustainability goals for 2022:

At LGT, we want to be among the pioneers when it comes to sustainability. Having a concrete framework and objectives can help us to advance the issue further. As a founding member of the UN’s Net-Zero Banking Alliance initiative, we join other representatives of the sector in taking an important step on the path to a more sustainable future.

Our sustainability commitments serve as our guide when making strategic and operational decisions. We are convinced that as a financial services provider, the only way to be successful in the long term is if we take natural resources into account – in our day-to-day operations, and in our investment decisions.

H.S.H. Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein, Chairman LGT: “LGT aims to reduce net emissions from its operations and investments to zero by 2030. To achieve net-zero emissions from operations, LGT has set group-wide targets for 2025 that include reductions in CO2 emissions, energy consumption and paper consumption.

On the investment side of the business, LGT’s target is to reduce the carbon footprint of its own investments to the greatest degree possible by 2030. LGT also aims to reduce the CO2 emissions of those investments in its client portfolios that can be influenced, i.e. that are directly managed.”
