Improving sustainability helps create a better world

What do palm oil, angora rabbits and your shower head have in common? They all involve sustainability issues – from chopping forests, to unnecessary suffering of animals to wasting energy. ABN AMRO aims to be a bank that contributes to a sustainable and better world – in all areas. That’s why we help people to make their homes more sustainable, promote green investment, and are global fighters for respecting human rights and against labour exploitation and hazardous conditions at work.

Our sustainability criteria: making the world a better place

We’ve designed clear and ambitious sustainability criteria for all sectors we finance, and will only do business with companies that are willing to comply with these criteria. We engage with them and actively help them implement improvements. You can contribute a lot, too. Read on to find out what’s happening in what sector – and what you and we can do about it!
