Engaging with our communities

Engaging with our communities

UBP has always placed great emphasis on engaging with and supporting its local communities and we have a long tradition of sponsoring projects in a selection of areas that our values align with. We also organise and support charity and environmental projects for our staff to participate in.


UBP focuses its long-term support on organisations and charities in the areas of culture, education and research. By extending our sponsorship over several years, we are able to build solid and trusting relationships, whilst our thematic targeting keeps us from spreading our efforts too thin.

On the cultural scene, we focus on theatre and classical music. We are long-term supporters of the Grand Théâtre de Genève and the Camerata Venia orchestra, and are also a season partner of the Comédie de Genève drama centre.

Employee engagement

UBP encourages employees to support and join in community action which the Bank organises in partnership with various local charities and NGOs. These drives give the Bank’s employees the chance to discover and get involved with social and environmental organisations by lending a hand, sharing their knowledge, or donating in kind. In this way the volunteers help local communities while also broadening their horizons. To help staff get involved, we offer one day of leave per year for volunteering.

Among the initiatives we have run in recent years, there have been clean-up days in several locations to help tackle littering, a tree-planting day in the countryside surrounding Geneva to help preserve our woodlands, and a collection of clothes, toys and food, through the Geneva Red Cross and Fondation Partage, to donate to local people in need.
