In recent years, DBS has been strengthening its sustainability agenda in various ways. In July 2017, the Bank was the first financial institution in Singapore to issue a green bond to support the financing of green assets. It was the sole bookrunner of Singapore’s first corporate green bond in April 2017. As an affirmation of its commitment to sustainability, DBS was also the first Singapore bank to be included as an index constituent of the FTSE4Good Global Index in 2017, making it one of 8 Singapore-listed companies to be globally recognised for its Environmental, Social and Governance practices.
