We focus on three global transitions

Our climate is changing. Demand for food is increasing. And inequality continues to put a strain on society and our communities. Around the world, consumers and businesses face the growing need to live and work more sustainably. That’s why we embrace innovation and team up with our customers and partners to address important social, economic and environmental issues.

Cooperative solutions to todays challenges

In particular, we focus on three key transitions where we can make a meaningful difference: the sustainable food and energy transitions, plus the transition to a more inclusive society where everyone can pursue their ambitions. Finding cooperative solutions to today’s central challenges makes us tick, whether we are serving agribusiness clients from New Zealand to Brazil, or private banking customers in the Netherlands.

Food

By 2050, there will be nearly 10 billion mouths to feed. At the same time, the climate is changing and natural resources are being depleted. The challenge: produce more food than ever before, using fewer resources.

With clients across the global food value chain – from farm to fork – Rabobank is in the right place to speed up the transition to a fair, sustainable food system. One that respects the environment and producer livelihoods.

We help our clients future-proof their businesses so there will be enough nutritious, affordable food long into the future. We do that with:

Climate & Energy

Climate change: it’s one of the biggest threats to the planet and the way we live today.

To tackle this shared challenge we need to change how we produce and consume energy. We must also advance a circular economy, meaning more sustainable use – and reuse – of resources.

Together with clients and partners, Rabobank is speeding up these needed transitions: from investing in clean energy projects to helping companies switch to renewable energy sources; from stimulating circular entrepreneurship to advising customers on energy reduction in their homes and businesses.

With our industry knowledge and financial tools, we support cooperative climate and energy solutions that are good for people, businesses and the planet.

Inclusivity

Everyone deserves a fair and equal chance to pursue their ambitions – whether that means finding a comfortable home, performing meaningful work, or investing in their business.

As a cooperative bank financing rural farmers around the world and retail customers in the Netherlands, we stimulate financial well-being and security for our customers and their communities. That includes removing barriers to financial products and services, and increasing access to the labor market and affordable, sustainable housing.

With our networks, know-how and innovative financing solutions, we support a more inclusive society with equal opportunities for everyone.
