ING has been recognized as the Top Responsible Large Company for 2019, within the group of the 25 best ranked companies partaking in the competition. BpS TOP Responsible Company is a unique independent rating of large and small companies in the Czech Republic, which evaluates and appreciates strategies and activities in the area of responsibility and sustainability.
ING was also a partner of the “Top Sustainable Reporting” category where Isold Heemstra (CEO of ING Czech Republic) gave over the prize to the winner together with a defining speech: “As a bank, we contribute to improving the global climate by committing to the Paris agreement to maximize the raise of the average temperature below 2 °C. We also help our clients in search of solutions to decrease our fossils dependency. But such complex challenges will not be solved by a single bank, non-profit organization or government. We must all work together. Therefore, ING is involved in UN environmental programs and initiatives or the World Economic Forum. At the same time, we believe that responsible business is the only right one.”
