Benchmark: Ecofys, a Navigant company, supported ASN Bank in demonstrating superior climate performance

Published: 07/05/2018

ASN Bank is the only bank in the Netherlands to disclose the full climate impact of their investments.

Ecofys, a Navigant company, developed a benchmark for the climate performance of Dutch financial institutions and compared it to the climate impact of ASN Bank’ s investment portfolio. The sustainable finance experts found ASN Bank’s climate performance superior to the average Dutch bank benchmark.

For every €1000 worth of savings at ASN, 35kg of CO2e less is emitted annually. Ecofys, a Navigant company, translated this emissions reduction into a number of insightful metrics, like the growth of 11 trees over a year, one year of not doing your laundry, or 49 years of not charging your smartphone.
