KBC publishes transparent report on progress on sustainability

KBC published its annual sustainability report (in English) on 1 April 2021. The report provides an overview of the progress made by KBC in 2020 as a sustainable bank-insurer and asset manager.

The SDGs[1] serve as the common thread running through the report, which sets out in detail how KBC's sustainability targets contribute to achieving those goals. KBC follows the international GRI standards,[2] and since 2019 has also applied the criteria drafted by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). Since 2019, KBC has also anchored the TCFD recommendations[3] on climate reporting in its sustainability report.

Compared with the previous edition, this report looks at a number of topics in more depth, such as climate objectives, the influence that KBC can exert in some areas, the way in which KBC complies with its public commitments and the overview of facts and figures on sustainability.
