Survey of the banks about the sustainability themes

For the collection of the qualitative and quantitative data we used public and independent much as possible. For a large number of themes that are very relevant for the sector, public sources are not available, however. We chose therefore to subject a representative sample of the Febelfin members to a very detailed survey. 19 credit institutions and financial groups, all members of Febelfin, participated in the survey held in May 2012. Together they make up more than 90% of the financial activities in Belgium, measured in terms of the size of the balance sheet.

The survey, which contained more than 90 questions, was discussed with the stakeholders beforehand to ensure correct and relevant questions.

The following 19 institutions filled in the survey:

  • Argenta
  • AXA
  • Bank Delen & De Schaetzen
  • Bank J. Van Breda & C°
  • Banque CPH
  • Belfius
  • BNP Paribas Fortis
  • Citibank Belgium
  • Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft
  • Delta Lloyd Bank
  • Euroclear Bank
  • Europabank
  • ING België
  • JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A.
  • KBC
  • Santander Benelux
  • Société Générale Private Banking
  • The Bank of New York Mellon s.a.
  • UBS Belgium
