Alpha Bank joins FTSE4good emerging index

Alpha Bank, following its successful assessment by the FTSE International Organisation in June 2017, is included as a constituent of the Financial Times Stock Exchange4Good (FTSE4Good) Emerging Index, which assesses listed companies in terms of their environmental and social performance.

The inclusion of the Bank in the FTSE4Good international index demonstrates that the Bank, along with its business activity, is also highly aware of environmental and social issues.

At the same time, its inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index strongly motivates the Bank to strengthen its presence in the field of Corporate Responsibility, both in Greece and internationally.
