Sustainability at BBVA Corporate & Investment Banking

Banks are called upon to play a catalytic role in the transition to a more sustainable world: mobilising capital as a channelling agent for public funds, while at the same time encouraging private investment; developing comprehensive financial solutions for businesses and individuals; and advising and supporting customers in their transition.


Our aim is accompany our clients in their sustainability journey, and generate an impact on the real economy. 


The sustainable finance market is changing quickly with new players and solutions arising daily. Looking at the future, BBVA believes digitizing sustainable finance could be a game changer. Mobile platforms and data analytics are already bringing sophisticated financial services to mass markets, helping to finance SMEs, and promoting more sustainable habits in consumer spending. Digitization provides us an opportunity to reshape finance, and now, more than ever, given the current global health crisis.

In any case, and despite all the work that has already been done, and the successes BBVA has already had, the bank understands that sustainability is a journey, not a destination. BBVA will continue its own transformation as an organization, and help its clients in their sustainable journey. The ultimate goal for BBVA is that when one thinks of sustainability, one thinks of BBVA.
