NEW YORK -- April 18, 2013

Deutsche Bank today announced its participation as one of ten charter members
in New York City’s Carbon Challenge to commercial offices. Deutsche Bank is
one of five companies to pledge a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from
our New York City offices by 40% in the next ten years. Five others have
committed to a 30% reduction. This challenge was created as part of plaNYC to
reduce city-wide green house gas emissions by 30% by 2030.

Upon accepting this challenge, Jacques Brand said, “On behalf of our
approximately 6,000 local employees, we are pleased to be part of the New York
City Mayor’s Carbon Challenge to commercial offices. Over the past few years
we have completed approximately 80 distinct projects in New York City which
reduced our use of electricity by 18.3 million kwh per year, a reduction of
approximately 25%. We installed 682 solar panels on our roof, which will
decrease carbon emissions by 100 metric tons per year. Because of these and
other efforts, our corporate headquarters at 60 Wall St. was recognized in
2012 as the EBie All-Rounder award winner as the most improved building in the
United States across multiple sustainability capabilities by the Urban Green

Brand continued, “Additionally, through the Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation,
we recently announced Deutsche Bank’s commitment to cleaner energy through the
establishment of a $30 million Community Clean Heat Fund and philanthropic
support for the New York City Energy Efficiency Corporation.”

Deutsche Bank committed to being carbon neutral by 2013, which was achieved
over a five-year period by reducing the bank’s global carbon footprint by 20%
per year since 2007. For more information on Deutsche Bank’s sustainability
