Press release: ABN AMRO publishes first human right report

ABN AMRO publishes first human rights report

ABN AMRO is the first financial institution in the world to publish a human
rights report based on the reporting framework of the UN Guiding Principles
on Business and Human Rights. In the report, the bank sets forth its human
rights policy and how it seeks to meet its policy commitments. The
publication of the report is an important milestone in the bank's efforts to
revisit its operations from a human rights perspective.

The report focuses on four human rights issues: privacy, discrimination,
labour rights and land-related human rights. These are the human rights that
are most at risk of being violated by the activities of the bank and the
companies it finances or invests in on behalf of clients. ABN AMRO is active
in a large number of countries and sectors. In order to minimise the risk of
the bank doing business with companies that violate human rights, it actively
monitors clients that operate in high-risk industries and countries. Where
necessary, ABN AMRO engages with clients to bring about improvement. The bank
also proactively seeks to create positive impact, for example by encouraging
social impact investing.

The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights are the global
authoritative standard on business respect for human rights. Caroline
Princen, member of ABN AMRO's Managing Board: 'Firmly embedding respect for
human rights in our operations is an ongoing process. In this report we also
describe the dilemmas we face and where more work is needed. We are proud to
be at the forefront of businesses reporting about their activities in the
area of human rights.'
