Rabobank is more than just a bank. First of all, we are a cooperative – that is what sets us apart from other banks. Cooperative banking allows us to exert a more positive influence on people, nature and society. This is important because major challenges shape the world we live in. Challenges like climate change, nature loss, but also growing social and financial inequality. With our partners, members and other stakeholders, Rabobank wants to contribute to positive change and promotes a more sustainable, inclusive society where everyone can pursue their ambitions. We exchange insights with our stakeholders in a continuous dialogue. As a cooperative bank we include these various perspectives in our actions and considerations to have a more sustainable, positive impact.

We now operate in 38 countries, with over 43,000 employees. In the Netherlands, we serve retail and corporate clients with a wide range of financial products and services. Across the world, we focus on entrepreneurs and companies in the food and agriculture sectors. The Rabobank Group also includes BPD, Obvion and DLL, with which we offer our clients housing and leasing solutions.
