Joining forces for a sustainable economy
Not only do we critically select our business partners, we also encourage companies to do business more sustainably and offer them our expertise to this end. For example, we are willing to extend loans to businesses that may not be ‘ecoproof’ but that are eager for us to help them improve in this area. Our sustainability guidelines are tailored to specific sectors of the economy.
Businesses in the textiles industry, to name but one example, can consult the Sustainable Fashion Guide to establish whether they are trailblazers or whether they lag their peers in terms of sustainability. They can also use the guide to determine how best to move forward. It’s not only the environment that benefits, but also a company’s working conditions and image. In this way, we are joining forces for a sustainable economy.
