BNG Bank is of and for the Dutch public sector. Instead of maximising profits, our priority is to maximise the social impact of our activities. Based on this purpose, we started our 'Road to Impact' strategy, focused on serving the public sector and building client partnerships.
BNG Bank is in 1914 begonnen als de Gemeentelijke Kredietbank en verstrekte gemeenten financiering om hun maatschappelijke taak te kunnen vervullen. Deze bijdrage aan de Nederlandse publieke sector is anno 2022 nog steeds het doel van de bank, gedreven door hun ''Road to Impact''-strategie. Impact proberen te kwantificeren en rapporteren is een nieuwe toevoeging aan de kernprocessen van BNG Bank. Ondertussen worden regels en voorschriften met betrekking tot milieu- en sociale impact steeds belangrijker voor banken en bedrijven. Als CFO spelen Olivier Labe en zijn team een belangrijke rol bij het navigeren door de uitdagingen van het ontwikkelen en inbedden van innovatieve benaderingen voor het meten van impact die passen bij de specifieke strategie van BNG Bank, terwijl ze generieke regels en voorschriften over dit onderwerp implementeren.
