PLAN Responsible Management 2016-2018


A culture of transparency and integrity that safeguards the interests of all stakeholders.

We continue advancing in ensuring good governance in Bankia, encouraging responsible management and integrating it into the company's governance.

Areas of action

Integration of the CSR function into Bankia's governance.

Promoting responsible management and recognition of good governance in Bankia.

Identifying and managing non-financial risks.

Progress in 2016

In 2016 Bankia's corporate governance was strengthened in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR). New responsibilities were attributed to the Appointments Committee, changing its name accordingly to the Appointments and Responsible Management Committee.

We inaugurated the Responsible Management Blog for Directors for monthly dissemination of CSR-related contents. In addition, a workshop was organised to discuss developing trends and best practices in CSR.

In line with the recommendations of the Good Governance Code, the initiative begun in late 2015 to identify, assess, manage and control non-financial risks was continued. In July 2016 the Board of Directors approved the Manual on Reputational Risk Management Policies, and the reputational risks map was obtained to classify events according to their severity and allow active management of those that could entail larger losses for the Bank.

2016 Milestones

Creation of a Board Committee on Responsible Management.

Definition and implementation of the map of non-financial risks.

Training and awareness-raising for the Board of Directors in responsible management matters.


Comprehensive relationships tailored to customers’ requirements.

The customer is Bankia's greatest asset; that is why we offer our clients a high level of professionalism and make quality service a top priority.

Areas of action

Adaptation to the needs of customers, offering products and services that respond to their requirements.

Promoting responsible marketing based on transparency, simplicity and relevance in the information we provide.

Progress in 2016

The efforts made in 2016 contributed to defining a new way of engaging with the customer by formulating a Relationship Style, aimed at offering the best service.

We defined a Responsible Marketing Code in which Bankia employees commit to developing close, simple and transparent relationships with customers, as the key for creating lasting bonds, knowing their needs in depth and offering them the right products and services for their requirements.

The promotion of financial education was embodied in the Investment School (spanish version) and the Bankia Blog,  (spanish version) areas where investors can find information of interest to them, such as basic concepts, tools, tips for being a good shareholder, etc.

2016 Milestones

Fostering diversity and equality.

Progress in 2016

In 2016 we published the Management Style Guide, a manual that reflects Bankia's approach to team management, a simple, direct and transparent guide for managers to use to integrate the bank's values into their day-to-day work. A total of 219 executives received Management Style training in 2016.

In 2016, UNE Standard 15896 on Value Added Purchasing Management was renewed. That norm establishes a quality standard that generates value for compliant businesses, ensures respect for environmental and ethical principles of sustainability, and minimises risks.

The Supplier Portal was strengthened, incorporating mandatory social and environmental information. At year-end 2016, Bankia had 1,412 suppliers certified to our CSR standards.
