Putting people centre stage - ABN AMRO Group N.V. Human Rights Report 2018

ABN AMRO today releases its second Human Rights Report, underpinned by the reporting guidelines of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The 2018 report features ABN AMRO’s progress on the human rights that are most at risk through the bank’s activities and business relationships: discrimination, privacy, labour rights and land-related human rights. It also describes the human rights path the bank has been on since 2011 – from theory to practice. Human rights is one of the key focus areas of ABN AMRO’s sustainability policy.

A significant part of the report is dedicated to people in vulnerable positions, be it retail clients with debt issues or children labouring in the supply chains of companies the bank finances. In other words, this ranges from people known to the bank, such as its clients and employees, to large groups of people that are not in direct contact with the bank.

The report also highlights instances in which ABN AMRO leads the industry or society at large, a case in point being its close collaboration with the Inspectorate of the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment and the University of Amsterdam to track down human trafficking by analysing financial data.
