VP Bank has been committed to the principle of sustainability for many years and have implemented numerous measures, including:

  • Extensive use of renewable energy in our offices.
  • We installed solar panels at our headquarters in Liechtenstein in 1994.
  • New employees receive a refillable Drink & Donate water bottle, which reduces the use of single use bottles.
  • Every employee is entitled to one day off per year for volunteer work.
