The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

BayernLB employees are committed to the community

Our employees are involved in a wide range of initiatives, whether in kindergartens, vocational orientation in schools or support for disadvantaged young people. They are an important, supporting pillar of our corporate citizenship. We actively support them in this, for example through our corporate volunteering program. Our donations go to Sternstunden, a charity that helps children who are seriously ill, disabled or otherwise in need.
