Corporate Social Responsibility

We are working to make a more positive impact on the communities where we operate and do business

Our business is global. SWIFT works with and for financial communities across the globe. We know this is a privilege as well as a responsibility, and we are committed to making a positive impact wherever we can. We are working to make a more positive impact on the communities where we operate and do business. We integrate social, environmental, ethical, and human rights concerns into our operational strategy. Education, diversity, sustainability, community outreach—our belief in the mportance of these issues is embedded in our company mind-set. Our intermediary role in the financial industry also puts us in a great position to facilitate dialogue on these topics.
