Bankinter reinforces its position as one of the most sustainable banks in the world with renewal of its membership of the prestigious FTSE4Good index
- The bank has been included in this index, which was created in 2001, for 22 years, reflecting its performance in the three areas of sustainability: environmental, social and governance (ESG).
- Bankinter has also been a member of the highly regarded Dow Jones Sustainability Index World - which includes the most sustainable international companies - for five years.
Bankinter receives further recognition as a sustainable bank. The entity has again renewed its membership of the UK's prestigious FTSE4Good index, which features the international companies with the strongest sustainability performance.
Bankinter has now been included in the FTS4Good - which was created in 2001 - for 22 years. The bank has again passed the annual review required for inclusion in this index.
Bankinter has demonstrated constant progress in the internal application of its sustainability policy based on environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, a policy which is reviewed by indexes such as the FTSE4Good every year.
The FTSE4Good examines the performance of companies in the environmental, social and governance dimensions, with those that pass this review being included in its list of the securities of the world's most sustainable companies. Many players in the market, such as private investors and fund managers, are increasingly seeking securities with strong and demonstrable sustainability policies for their portfolios.
Universal sustainability policy in the bank
In addition to being included in the FTS4Good, Bankinter has also been listed in the prestigious Dow Jones Sustainability Index World for five years, with its membership being confirmed in each annual review. This is further recognition by the international markets of Bankinter being one of the most sustainable banks in the world.
To this, we can add the "B" rating given to Bankinter by the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a leading source of data on risks and opportunities in climate-change management.
Bankinter's presence in leading international indices specialising in sustainability demonstrates its progress over more than 15 years. Sustainability is one of its core strategic commitments, which it pursues through an increasingly universal policy covering most of the bank's areas.
One example of this sustainability strategy is the range of sustainable products in its commercial offering, such as its green mortgage, a wide range of investment funds linked to sustainability criteria, both in-house and from leading foreign fund managers, and a pension plan based on these criteria.
The bank is seeking to maintain its progress in sustainability through its Sustainability Plan for 2021-2023, which is known as the "3D Plan" as it addresses all three dimensions (environmental, social and governance). The results achieved have been recognised by numerous international indexes and organisations.
