Our Performance According to ESG Rating Agencies

Rabobank’s sustainability performance is assessed by various independent Environmental Social Governance (ESG) rating agencies. ESG ratings provide information on (mainly) non-financial performance of companies toward a wide range of stakeholders. In recent years there has been a growing demand for ESG information from various stakeholders. ESG rating agencies review and assess companies on various elements of risk and ESG performance, based on their own methodologies and processes. As a bank we use these ratings to gain insights on the quality and potential areas of improvement of our sustainability initiatives.
