Environmental and social risk management

In keeping with the ING Bank Śląski S.A. Sustainability Strategy for 2017-2019 approved by the Bank Management Board, we support our business clients and partners in sustainable running of their business. We recognise our role in ecological projects like the ones pursued in the electric power industry. The companies operating in that sector have to face the challenge of balancing an incremental demand for energy with the need to reduce negative environmental footprint. We want to help clients in energy transformation and switching to low-carbon business. At the same time, we plan to become more involved in funding green energy projects.

The areas to obtain our support according to the Green Statement of ING Bank Śląski S.A. include but are not limited to:

 

  • Renewable resources projects run by electric power holdings,
  • Projects supporting development of modern electric power transmission and distribution infrastructure,
  • ESCO projects to offer comprehensive energy solutions which contribute to energy saving,

 

  • Electromobility-oriented projects,
  • Other projects to prevent pollution and increase recycling opportunities.

We apply the Environmental and Social Risk (ESR) guidelines to identify cases of unethical activity. Based on these guidelines, we assess our clients and check whether the transactions we enter into with them meet our ethical standards. It allows us to mitigate the risk of cooperation with clients operating in industries classified as excluded or sensitive. In the former case, we resign from the cooperation, while in the latter – cooperation is possible following positive client’s assessment and upon fulfilling the principles set forth in the ESR.

We also refuse to finance those clients who could expose us to the reputational risk. It could follow from, for example, associating the Bank with the client’s operations or the objective wherefor the client would want to use our services.

In particular, we do not participate in transactions where the entities producing controversial types of weapon or selling weapon to non-government armed forces or embargoed countries are involved.

Sustainable investment

We support environment- and society-friendly investment projects. In recent years, we financed
a dozen or so large infrastructure investment projects concerning renewable energy sources, biogas, heat and power plants, waterworks and waste recycling, to name a few. We also participated in financing investment projects being wind farms. We have been actively seeking projects in the area of photovoltaic energy and renewable energy from waste utilisation.
