CSR report and code of conduct

BEC’s most important social impact and focus is to support a secure, stable, resilient, and innovation-promoting financial infrastructure in Denmark – while doing this in a responsible way.

BEC is a central player in Denmark’s financial infrastructure and stability. A significant proportion of Danes and Danish companies have their main bank connection in one of the banks on BEC’s IT platform.

BEC delivers for example IT solutions that prevent money laundering, safeguard personal data, protect private investors, and provide better calculations of banks’ capital requirements to reduce the risk of future financial crises.

BEC’s annual CSR report provides an overview of the work with supporting this financial infrastructure. In addition, it provides an overview of our focus within environment and climate, societal matters and corporate governance – also known as the ESG agenda – and how we work with this concretely. This means everything from how we work on minimizing our environmental footprint, develop employees’ and leaders’ competences, diversity and inclusion, data ethics, risks and much more.

Happy reading.
