ING published the 2014 Annual Report of ING Groep N.V. and ING Bank N.V.. For the first time, the Annual Report of ING Groep N.V. is an integrated report, combining the financial and non-financial performance in 2014.
ING’s role as a financial institution is to support and encourage economic, social and environmental progress. ING’s purpose – empowering people to stay a step ahead in life and in business – is reflected in ING’s structure, strategy and in the values and behaviours we embrace. By disclosing and explaining both ING’s economic performance, as well as ING’s impact on society and the environment in one integrated report, ING aims to provide a clear account of how it creates value in the context of our role in society.
ING also published the 2014 Annual Review, which provides in an attractive and informative format information from the Annual Report and gives an comprehensive overview of our businesses and ING’s overall strategy supported by several case studies.
While material sustainability information is now included in the relevant chapters in the integrated Annual Report, thereby replacing the former separately published Sustainability Report, for specific stakeholder groups and rating agencies detailed supporting non-financial data is provided in the Sustainability Annex, which is also published today.
