Sustainable entrepeneurship

As part of a cooperative insurer, we solve major issues related to health, living & working, mobility and income. Based on cooperative ideas and experience, we know that value for the customer and society always come together, with Sustainable Living Together as the central mission of our organization. Achmea Bank contributes with its sustainability ambitions and activities to the global Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. By signing the 'Principles for Responsible Banking', Achmea Bank demonstrates its contribution to these SDG's and to the Paris Climate Agreement. Besides that sustainability is a central theme within our organization, we also ensure that this theme is central to our partners (see Sustainability statement). As part of our sustainability ambitions we also drafted an environmental policy for Achmea's internal business operations.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) are 17 sustainable development goals for a better, livable world by 2030. The SDG's were agreed upon by countries affiliated with the United Nations (UN), including the Netherlands. The 17 goals cover diverse themes such as climate, health, poverty, biodiversity, equality and justice for all. For a livable, sustainable world, the UN says all 17 SDG's should be achieved by 2030. Although primarily aimed at governments, there is also an expectation that business and financial institutions will contribute to this.

Our choice for 3 SDG's 

Achmea Bank has chosen 3 SDG's, as part of our Sustainable Living Together vision, to which we want to make the most impactful contribution. These align closely with the core activities of our business: Reducing Inequality (SDG 10), Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11) and Climate Action (SDG 13). We actively support them, because we want to contribute to achieving these goals and long-term value creation is important to us. In our annual report, we outline how we contribute to these goals.


ESG timeline Achmea Bank

Achmea Bank has been working on ESG as part of its purpose for a long time. We have been reporting on this theme since 2019. Every year, we take new steps. Below you can see our timeline of ESG activities. 

Our ESG policy

We want to create value for our most important stakeholders: our customers and employees, partners and investors. We do this by working in an enterprising and innovative way on solutions for sustainability issues that are in line with our core competencies and activities. At the bottom of this page, you can download our ESG policy, in which we describe our sustainability ambitions for each ESG criterion (Environmental, Social and Governance).

We are transparant about our ESG achievements

We report on our objectives and results for each ESG criterion in our annual ESG Impact Report. In addition we report on the total CO2 emissions and energy labels of our mortgage portfolio. Finally, we report on our ESG ratings, which can be found (together with the ESG Impact Reports) on the ESG page under Investors on this website.
