ABN AMRO appears to have had limited but broadly positive engagement on sustainable finance policy. ABN AMRO has advocated for action to reach net-zero by 2050 and stated support for a role for finance in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. ABN AMRO has stated broad support for sustainable finance regulation in its Annual Review. However, in its 2019 and 2020 CDP responses, ABN AMRO wrote that its "proposed legislative solution was to avoid legislation at this moment" and in a 2017 response to the HLEG consultation suggested a 'supporting role' for governments and regulators but that development should come from investor demand.

However, more recently ABN AMRO's comments on specific regulatory streams appear to be more positive, including feedback to the European Commission on the taxonomy in 2018, a comment in the media on the EU Green Bond Standard in 2019 and feedback to the Commission on the Non-Financial Reporting Directive in 2020.

ABN AMRO has disclosed some information on sustainable finance policies it is tracking, but no further detail on direct engagements or desired outcomes. ABN AMRO has also listed trade association memberships but no other details of indirect influence.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
