Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Santander places great importance on conducting business in a responsible way. We take into account the impact we have on our stakeholders; our customers and our employees, our suppliers, the environment and communities. We aim to make a positive contribution to society, not just through the provision of banking services for our retail and business customers but also by sharing our success and contributing to the communities where we operate.
