SWIFT works with and for financial communities across the globe. We know this is a privilege as well as a responsibility, and we are committed to making a positive impact wherever we can.

We integrate social, environmental, ethical, and human rights concerns into our operational strategy, and strive to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our CSR programme covers several of them, and in particular SDG 1 No poverty and SDG 4 Quality Education.

SWIFT has been sponsoring charities while organising events since 2007, with a special focus on education and under-privileged children. In 2017, ECPAT in Sweden, Pestalozzi Kinderdorf in Switzerland, Cliniclowns in The Netherlands, Working Well in the UK, Face for Children in Need in Egypt, Evergreen in Canada, Breakthrough in the US, Children’s Society in Singapore and Many Rivers in Australia and have been among our beneficiaries. Additionally, we have supported SOS Children’s Villages in China, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Romania, Russia, Spain and Tanzania. This long lasting partner of SWIFT works to meet the needs and protect the interests and rights of children.

At this Business Forum in Lisbon, we are happy to provide financial support to the SOS Children’s Village of Bicesse.  As the first Portuguese SOS Children's Village constructed in 1967, it is now home to over 60 children aged 4 to 20.

The SOS Village, located just out of Lisbon, counts nine family houses, a community house, a library, a hall for various activities and a study room. In addition, it offers an SOS Social Centre and an SOS Day Care Centre to the neighborhood.

In the SOS Villages, in addition to the family context in which the children and young people live, they all attend public primary and secondary schools in the vicinity. For the young people who obtain education or vocational training in the capital, an SOS Youth House has been set up in Lisbon, in order to prepare them for their adult lives. SWIFT’s donation will support this specific project. 

Employee engagement is one of our key priorities, with over 21% of staff actively engaged in various associations.

At SWIFT we also care for the environment by implementing measures aimed at reducing our cooperative’s carbon emissions. We use renewable energy wherever feasible and compensate carbon emissions caused by work-related travel and events, and we continue our partnership with WeForest, an NGO devoted to reforestation of bio-diverse and indigenous forests in tropical countries while providing jobs for women and enabling them to send their children to school.
