Our focal points

Men behind magnifying glass

In addition to the four main pillars of its sustainability strategy, ABN AMRO focuses on four important themes: the circular economy, climate change, human rights and social entrepreneurship. We signed several statements that define our approach to the opportunities and challenges of these themes. The themes apply to all of ABN AMRO’s activities, throughout the organisation and in all its business relationships.

Circular economy

Circular economy

ABN AMRO views the circular economy as an opportunity to tackle the challenges of depleting raw materials. By engaging our clients, bringing together promising parties and launching pilot projects, we work to find concrete methods to accelerate the circular economy.
