Alpha Bank publishes Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2009

Respect for human values is Alpha Bank’s utmost priority. In conjunction with the profitable management of financial resources, our principles constitute the guidelines for each interaction with our People, Customers and Shareholders.”

Message from the Chairman of Alpha Bank, Mr. Yannis S. Costopoulos: “During 2009 the country’s public finances deteriorated severely. This halted the economy’s anticipated exit from the recession as the international financial crisisneared its end. In this exceptionally difficult business environment, Alpha Bank not only remained steadfastly committed to the values which have defined its growth and trajectory for decades, but also actively reaffirmed its dedication to responsible business practices and commitments to Customers, Employees, Shareholders and society at large.

“At Alpha Bank we recognise that our operations impact society and, especially during these difficult times, we support the economy by contributing to sustainable development. The current Report seeks to honestly and transparently present to our stakeholders our performance on the most important material issues and also to describe our commitments and targets for the future.

“In 2010 we are facing even more difficult conditions as well as challenges to solve the country’s major structural, environmental and social problems. Alpha Bank in full respect of its history cannot but play a leading role in the endeavour requiring the mobilisation of all the country’s resources in order to exit the crisis thus gaining new countenance and future prospects. Fully aware of our social role, we commit to live up to the trust of our Customers, Employees, Shareholders and society, supporting the efforts of our country to restructure the Greek economy and to create a new productive model.”
