LGT and Princely Family

The Princely Family’s long-term vision and commitment to sustainability are deeply rooted in LGT’s corporate culture. LGT Venture Philanthropy was founded in line with LGT’s philosophy of thinking and acting in a way that is both responsible and sustainable. In 2021, LGT committed to reducing its emissions to zero by 2030. LGT feels an obligation, across all its locations, to contribute to a society worth living in. Besides philanthropy, this approach can take many forms, including impact investing and engaging for sustainability.
