Many of Advanzia’s projects are initiated and implemented by employees of the company. The “Advanzia Plus” committee, which is comprised of members from all departments of the company, meets regularly to discuss CSR initiatives and internal improvement suggestions.
If we choose to support a particular project, we ensure that it follows our four CSR principles.
In 2020, Advanzia Bank became an official signatory of the Diversity Charter Luxembourg. We believe that diversity is a key driver of innovation and a great contributor to our success and business growth.
Our employees come from over 27 different countries from all over the world, which means that at Advanzia, our colleagues live diversity on a day-to-day basis. By signing the Charter, we officially commit to promote diversity and inclusion through concrete actions that go beyond legal obligations.
Advanzia Bank is a proud supporter of Mastercard and the United Nations World Food Programme partnership. By using contactless payment with an Advanzia Mastercard, our cardholders have helped to generate a donation of one million school meals for children in developing countries during a cause-related marketing campaign in 2019.
In 2020, the United Nations World Food Programme, the world’s biggest humanitarian organisation, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to combat hunger and improve conditions for peace.
Since 2016, we have been supporting the Luxembourg-based organisation, ASA asbl, which trains guide dogs for people with physical or mental disabilities. We do this by collecting bottle caps – an initiative supported by several other companies in Luxembourg. We also sponsor puppies that become guide dogs for a person with disabilities. Featured on the photo is Poppie, the Advanzia-sponsored guide dog in training.

We work with the ‘SuperDrecksKëscht’ in Luxembourg, an initiative created by the Luxembourgish government in 1985, aimed at reducing waste. In addition to the recycling of reusable materials, our involvement extends to providing regular waste management training for employees. For these initiatives, we have been granted their “company label”.
We hold the ESR label, which is awarded to Luxembourg-based companies that are socially responsible. The label is awarded by the National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility (iNDR).
Advanzia has been a partner of DHL’s Go Green Programme since 2017. This initiative by the logistics giant aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by implementing optimised transport routes, energy-efficient warehouses and alternative vehicle systems.
