2023 Brochure released!

UOB has been committed to creating long-term value for our customers, our colleagues and our communities since 1935. In building a sustainable business over time and across borders, we engage our stakeholders constructively and regularly. This enables us to align our strategies with what is important to them and for them to have a deeper appreciation of how we contribute to enterprise, innovation and economic growth across the region.

Our sustainability goals for 2022:

Drive Growth Sustainably

UOB drives growth sustainably by incorporating sustainability risk elements in its approach to risk management. This includes integrating ESG considerations into its credit evaluation and approval processes. The Bank offers a range of sustainable solutions that can help its customers make a difference in their own communities. The Bank also progressively adopts as well as promotes climate-resilient practices which support clients in their own transition to a lower-carbon economy. Beyond financing, UOB continues to make significant strides in growing its sustainable investing portfolio.

Keep Customers at the Centre

As UOB focuses on doing what is right for customers, it ensures that Fair Dealing principles are entrenched in all aspects of its relationship with them. Keeping their best interests in mind, the Bank harnesses technology and uses data to make banking simpler, smarter, safer and more intuitive for them. By doing so, UOB aims to make banking more accessible and inclusive to individuals and businesses in the communities in which it operates. Standing by its customers also means that the Bank protects the data and privacy by maintaining the security and robustness of its systems and processes.

Develop Professionals of Principle

UOB develops professionals of principle – high performing teams and individuals who are guided by the Bank’s values. It embraces diverse strengths and abilities as these enhance the Bank’s capabilities and enrich its competitiveness. UOB equips its colleagues to take on the challenges of tomorrow even as it cares for their welfare and work-life harmony today. UOB also fosters a sense of belonging among colleagues by encouraging volunteerism and improving engagement and satisfaction.

Uphold Corporate Responsibility

UOB believes that as a responsible financial services provider, it must uphold corporate responsibility by maintaining the highest standards of governance and risk culture, ensuring regulatory compliance and protecting the financial system. It remains steadfast in its commitment to promote social development in the areas of art, children and education. Both in its own operations as well as among its stakeholders, UOB actively encourages and supports environmental stewardship efforts. Together, these efforts help the Bank contribute to a strong and sustainable future for the wider community.
