Agriculture is an important sector to ABN AMRO, which is expected to continue to grow. As we recognise that the agricultural sector faces several critical sustainability issues, it is our policy to closely manage the Environmental, Social and Ethical (ESE) impacts and issues associated with the sector through thorough identification, mitigation, management and monitoring.
We have formulated Agri Core Values (ACVs) for all client engagements in the sector. For clients in the cocoa, coffee, sugar, cotton, palm oil and soy industries we have specific internal policy supplements and Sustainability Assessment Tools (SATs) in place. We also have policies for clients in the forestry and tree plantations and tobacco sectors. For clients in the fisheries sector we have guidelines in place. Finally, a set of guidelines determine our position regarding animal testing and fur.
