18th Karlsruhe Dialogues – Speakers
Does the world market society promote or prevent the achievement of global humanitarian living conditions?
As an internationally operating bank, we see both the benefits and drawbacks of a world market society on a daily basis. We have made it our corporate mission to help shape a society that promotes quality of life for all people and enables them to live in dignity. All people should have the freedom to develop themselves, and all should be granted the same rights – but everyone should also be responsible for the consequences of their own economic actions. Investors in Germany should ask themselves whether their money, through the activities of their bank, is exploiting or harming other people in the world. Responsible consumption is only one side of the coin; responsible investment is the other.
