Sustainability

We are committed to achieving a fully climate-neutral balance sheet by 2030. ASN Bank has already achieved this, so we know it is possible. Our choice has consequences for our customers, our employees and our investments. For instance, we help people make their homes more sustainable, we only lend money to projects and organisations that meet our sustainability criteria, and we only invest in bonds of countries and organisations that endorse those same criteria.

How sustainable housing pays off

Retail mortgages make up a large part of our bank balance sheet. For this reason alone, we take a close look at our customers’ homes. Furthermore, since residential behaviour greatly impacts the climate, we encourage people to make their homes energy efficient. This will make the housing market more sustainable and it will bring us one step closer to achieving our objective of having a fully climate-neutral balance sheet by 2030.
