Deutsche Bank has nominated Jörg Eigendorf as its chief sustainability officer.
As global head of communications, CSR and sustainability, Eigendorf has already played a major part in shaping the bank’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy since 2016. He will continue to report to CEO Christian Sewing.
Before joining Deutsche Bank, Eigendorf (pictured above, left, with Sewing and CFO James von Moltke) had a career in journalism, spending 16 years with German TV channel Welt and at Die Zeit before that.
“Sustainability is a critical success factor for our bank and a central element in our Global Hausbank strategy”, says CEO Christian Sewing. “We want to take advantage of the opportunities that are available to us in this area. At the same time, it is about continuously enhancing our controls and processes.
“Jörg Eigendorf has been a leading figure for some years now in driving our bank’s sustainability strategy. He is well suited to coordinate and steer this next stage across the entire bank.”
