ING and sustainability

As a company, bank and player of our society, ING plays an active role in sustainability.

Sustainable investment solutions

At ING, we select, as distributor of funds*, meticulously sustainable funds via a unique selection process fully aligned with environmental, social and good-governance (ESG) criteria.

Indeed, these ESG criteria enable us to evaluate the sustainability of any given investment:

  • ‘Environmental’ refers to businesses' involvement in environmental protection. 
  • ‘Social’ involves the relationships between businesses and people. Not only people's rights but particularly the important relationship between a company and its staff and suppliers. 
  • ‘Governance’ relates to the management of a company, a company's remuneration policy, shareholder rights, and wider interest groups such as taxpayers.

The majority of the products of ING's sustainable offer represent a combination of multiple criteria, an approach which ING supports. ING's sustainable investment approach is aimed to offer funds encouraging both companies and investors to allow sustainable development to play a greater role in their activities and choices.

Depending on your investor profile, you can invest in mixed funds (shares and bonds) or share funds (shares only). The ESG funds are meticulously selected according to the following criteria: the expertise of the fund* manager, the fund's performance, risk, degree of diversification and sustainability impact.
