‘Rabobank has an active Sustainability Policy. Rabobank supports sustainable development at its customers by means of financial solutions, insights, knowledge and access to networks. Improving sustainability is good for people, businesses and communities. In order to give sustainability an additional impulse, Rabobank introduced the Rabo Impact Loan for sustainable frontrunners on the commercial market. Limited resources were developed for this specific target group in collaboration with the European Investment Bank.

Rabobank assesses the attribution of the resources for frontrunners on the basis of the company's general policy and activities and also includes, among other things, a select number of hallmarks in its decision. Rabobank has selected a limited number of hallmarks for the Impact Loan that, in the eyes of the bank, represent clear added value in the field of sustainable/responsible development in business operations and/or in the field of fair trade. We included CSR Performance Ladder in our selection.'
