Rabobank appears to have had some engagement on sustainable finance policy, primarily limited to high-level supportive statements. Rabobank has stated support for a role for finance in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. In 2019, Rabobank’s Chairman Wiebe Draijer, stated broad support for the EU's Sustainable Finance Action Plan.

In a 2019 consultation response to the FCA accessed through a freedom of information request, Rabobank appeared to support improved regulated corporate ESG disclosure. Also in 2019, Rabobank’s Chairman appeared to support the need for EU policy to focus on ESG standards. In a few research papers published during 2020-2021, Rabobank appeared to support the EU Taxonomy. However, in an opinion piece on its website from 2021, it did suggest that the Taxonomy faces issues with data availability and a tight timeline.

Rabobank has disclosed some positions on some sustainable finance policies in a 2018 position paper on its website, however, more recent website articles have included broad positions on specific policies, such as the EU Taxonomy, but do not include further details on sustainable finance lobbying activities. Rabobank has disclosed its trade association memberships but has not given any further details of its governance 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.
