Our Road to Impact strategy

Everything we do revolves around making social impact. Instead of maximising profits, our priority is to maximise the social impact of our activities.

Maximising the social impact of our activities

BNG Bank’s purpose is: Driven by social impact. This purpose drives everything BNG Bank does. The bank engages with its clients about this purpose and helps them to achieve their social objectives.

Making measurable social impact

To actively enhance its social impact, BNG Bank began to measure the impact of its clients in 2021. The bank uses the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a point of reference, and is specifically focusing on the following five SDGs, which correspond closely to the activities that BNG Bank finances.

Measuring 5 selected SDGs

  • SDG 3: Good health and well-being;
  • SDG 4: Quality education;
  • SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy;
  • SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities;
  • SDG 13: Climate action.

Publishing impact reporting

BNG Bank carried out an initial assessment of the social impact that its clients create. Aim from 2020 onwards is to report annually (simultaneously with the annual report) on clients’ progress. Annually there will also be a separate report on the reduction of carbon emissions in the bank’s loan portfolio.
