Sustainability at ING

Our sustainability approach focuses on driving positive change in two areas - climate action and financial health.

Climate action

Our role in the transition to a low-carbon economy

As a global bank we have an opportunity - and responsibility - to make a positive impact and help create a healthy planet with prosperous people. That's why we're committed to steering our portfolio in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, to keep global warming to well below two degrees Celsius.

Financial health

Helping contribute to a financially healthy society

Money is one of the biggest challenges for many people and households around the world as they strive to meet their everyday needs, or plan for their future. As a bank, money is what we know best. And as innovators, we put money into products, tools, research and education that help contribute to a financially healthy society.

Strong communities

Partnering to build strong communities

We recognise no one sector, much less one bank, has the ability to solve the world's problems - which is why we partner with organisations taking innovative and entrepreneurial approaches to these challenges. Like our ING Dreamstarter program, which supports budding social entrepreneurs to ideate, launch, grow and scale businesses driving grassroots change. Or our partnership with Cerebral Palsy Alliance, which empowers young people with a disability to build life skills to pursue their education, employment and financial goals. And our annual IMPACT Week, where our employees volunteer with community organisations that preserve the planet and help people realise their potential.
