Piraeus Bank was founded in 1916. Today it represents the leading Bank in Greece with 30% market share in terms of customer loans and 29% in terms of customer deposits.
The Bank is committed to assuming a leading role in the Greek economy, actively supporting economic activity and extroversion by providing specialized solutions and high-level services to its 5.5 mn customers. Piraeus Bank was the only Greek bank that participated in a core group of 30 banks from all over the world under UNEP FI that created the Principles for Responsible Banking and the implementation framework. Today, around 190 banks have already signed up, amongst which are some of the largest financial institutions in the world.
The Principles of Responsible Banking define the framework within which sustainable banking will develop. The adoption of the Principles will harmonize the Banking Sector globally, with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
