Within the transportation sector, ABN AMRO is primarily engaged in business with large corporate clients in the shipping industry (PDF 97 KB). We recognise the shipping sector as an area that faces several environmental, social, and ethical (ESE) challenges.
To address these challenges, the bank has developed a Shipping Policy and a special questionnaire for ship owners. The assessment is used to integrate ESE risks into the financial analysis. The tool helps ABN AMRO compare its shipping clients on sustainability issues.
