Fair Bank Guide

The Dutch Fair Bank Guide (Eerlijke Bankwijzer) is an initiative on the part of six NGOs to benchmark the ESG policies of the largest banks in the Netherlands. We support the intention of the Dutch Fair Bank Guide, but we question the chosen method. For that reason from 2019 onward we decided - in line with other Dutch Banks and the Dutch Banking Association (NVB) - to stop participating. Since the beginning of 2022, Van Lanschot Kempen has decided to re-engage in dialogue with the Fair Bank Guide. Van Lanschot Kempen would like to be completely transparent about its own sustainability ambitions and policies and therefore opts for dialogue with external parties. In the future, we are therefore participating in the surveys of the Fair Bank Guide. We hope to include the Fair Bank Guide in the sustainability mission that we share with our clients.
