Statement of ING:
ING does not invest your savings in cluster munitions. ING applies strict criteria for companies directly involved in anti-personnel landmines, cluster bombs, depleted uranium ammunition and biological, chemical or nuclear weapons. Companies which are directly involved in manufacturing, maintaining or trading these types of weapons will be excluded from new financing.
An exception is made for companies with limited involvement in controversial weapons which are mainly involved in non-controversial activities such as civil aircraft. If so, we may provide financing for their non-controversial activities only.
With regard to investments, the policy differentiates between ING proprietary investments and investments made on behalf of our customers. The Policy applies to ING proprietary assets only. These are amongst others customer savings and pension premiums invested by ING to provide for future guaranteed pension schemes.
Third party assets, invested on behalf of our customers, are not restricted under our voluntary defence policy. Within the boundaries of the law, our customers are free to invest their money according to their personal preferences. ING offers sustainable investment funds and portfolio screening for customers who wish to exclude defence industry securities from their investment portfolio. Find the ING Defence Policy here.
