ABN AMRO embeds ESG risk score to address demand for sustainable finance
ABN AMRO will soon add information on the contribution to the Paris Climate Agreement of the companies in its client’s investment portfolios, their carbon emissions, and the UN Social Development Goals.
ABN AMRO has announced that it has embedded ESG risk score onto its trading platform, thus allowing investment clients to see what impact they have made with their investments.
The impact can be seen through the bank’s website and via mobile app and the service is already available for clients of ABN AMRO’s private bank in Germany, Bethmann Bank. Later this year, clients in France and Belgium will also be able to digitally access information on their impact.
Vincent Triesschijn, head of ESG at ABN AMRO, commented: “Our clients want to have an insight into the sustainable impact they are making with their assets in addition to an overview of the financial results. If a client would like to get in touch with us to discuss increasing the sustainability of their portfolio, we will be happy to talk to them.”
ESG Risk Score for better risk management
The ESG risk score will be available for consumer clients in asset management and private banking using ABN AMRO’s advisory services. By learning the actual impact of their investments using the ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) risk score for their investment portfolio, investors will be able to adjust their risk management properly.
ABN AMRO will soon add information on the contribution to the Paris Climate Agreement of the companies in its client’s investment portfolios, their carbon emissions, and the UN Social Development Goals. The bank will include an explanation of how the scores are calculated, managed by independent external sources.
