Responsible banking

Working for BBVA means: “We work for a better future for people”. We are committed to offer the best solutions to our clients, shareholder profitability while generating progress and development for the communities we serve.
To bring this vision to life we rely on three pillars: principles, innovation and people. Integrity, Prudence and Transparency are the principles we embrace to bring coherence to what we do, say and think as a team and as a Group. Our bet on technology and innovation helps us prepare for the challenges of today and the future. It´s the people like you who make the real difference.

Our commitments

At BBVA we believe in a different model of banking based on the principles of integrity, prudence and transparency.
To bring this to fruition, we have adopted three commitments:
-Strive to conduct our daily work so it has a positive impact on the communities where we operate.
-Sponsor “social business opportunities” to create social and economic value for BBVA.
-Invest in the communities where we have presence by supporting initiatives, especially those involving education.


Education is the strategic priority of the Group’s social programs, and it is focused on three lines:
– Financial education.
– Training for SMEs.
– Education for social integration of children and youths and educating them in values.

Entrepreneurship and community involvement

-Momentum Project: Offers training, assessment and financing to 10 social entrepreneur projects yearly.
-Territorios Solidarios: A community service program for local non-profit organizations.

Products with a high social impact

These products give us the opportunity to generate a greater social impact, taking into account the needs of people and how they live.
At BBVA, we promote inclusive growth through three lines of action:
– Promoting one bank for all, which correctly services a low-income population through the Microfinance Foundation.
– Supporting the growth of SMEs and their social impact.
– Supporting audiences with special needs.

Environment and sustainability

The BBVA commitment to the environment and efficient management of natural resources comes together in a Global Eco-efficiency Plan which establishes very ambitious goals to reduce the environmental footprint of our activity.
What’s more, we use our foundations to promote research into climate change and initiatives to conserve species and ecosystems in the countries in which BBVA operates.
