We want to have a favourable impact on people’s lives…But we also recognise that our bank may be connected to practices that harm people’s fundamental dignity: their human rights. At ABN AMRO, we address our connection to human rights…We have an impact on human rights: through our own activities and the activities of our suppliers…In our own activities, we are connected to potential human rights abuses in a number of ways…The activities of our clients are another area in which ABN AMRO could be connected to potential abuses of human rights. As a bank, we recognise that some of the most severe human rights risks we could be connected to occur as a result of our clients’ activities…For ABN AMRO, understanding how we can be connected to human rights abuses is first and foremost about trying to prevent or mitigate those abuses…This guide, we hope, has made very clear our firm belief in and commitment to the importance of respect for human rights at ABN AMRO. We also hope it has shared meaningful information about our existing and planned future actions that enable us to live up to our commitment...
