Protecting the planet

Reducing our environmental impact

We work towards achieving a better and more sustainable future, which is why protecting the planet is key in reaching our goals.

What is a carbon footprint?

What is a carbon footprint?

Everyone, every day, generates greenhouse gas emissions through their activities.

A carbon footprint makes up all emissions generated by humans, organisations, events and products that build up in the atmosphere, both directly and indirectly, and that exacerbate climate change.

That’s why Openbank is taking steps to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in the financing, advisory and investment services we offer.

A fairer business model

This environmental commitment also extends to our business model, developing more sustainable products and services.

Investments

Investments

All of our robo-advisor automated investment service portfolios include at least 50% of funds with environmental, social and good governance criteria.

Cards

Cards

90% of our cards are made from recycled PVC-R. We aim to hit the 100% mark in 2024 and further encourage the use of virtual cards to reduce the emissions generated from the use of virgin plastic.

Recycling, recycling, recycling

As part of our efforts to protect the planet, we’ve installed recycling points in our Madrid branches to recycle any plastic cards no longer used and to convert them into urban furniture, such as plant pots and benches.

Un futuro más sostenible empieza hoy

A more sustainable future starts today

Commitment starts from within. That’s why every year all Openbank employees take part in Open Ecoweek, where we host workshops and talks with professionals who teach and encourage us to build a more sustainable future.
