ING wants to be a pioneer in defining new ways to do business. We want to be a banking leader in building a sustainable future for our company, our customers, society and the environment. How?

We focus on climate action:
We lead by example by striving for net zero in our own operations.
We play our full part in the social and low-carbon transformation that’s necessary to achieve a sustainable future, steering our financing towards meeting global climate goals.
We collaborate: working with clients to achieve their own sustainability goals, increasing our impact through partnerships and coalition-building.
We manage the most relevant environmental and social risks while fostering the protection of biodiversity and human rights across all of our relationships.
We’re working to advance financial health and inclusion for our customers and communities.
And we empower our employees to contribute to it all.

The workshop Financing the Energy Transition

We are in a transition period to phase out fossil fuel usage by the end of the century.What is the role of banks and other financial institutions in this transition period? How can they facilitate the required investments in new energy technologies and what financial product innovations are needed? In an interactive workshop ING will share its views on the above questions and invite the students to work on the financing of a real life case, being Northvolt, the green, innovative and Europe’s first giga battery-factory.
