ABN AMRO, an international bank based in the Netherlands, plans to speed up and extend integration of sustainability into its mainstream business, according to its third sustainability report, published today at http://www.abnamro.com/reports

Covering 2005 and published in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, the report provides an extensive overview - supported by examples - of ABN AMRO's sustainability-related activities. It focuses on six key areas: being accountable and transparent, protecting assets, providing responsible financial services, being an employer of choice, minimizing impact on the environment and supporting local communities.

The report, verified by Ernst & Young, features more details than in previous years on the bank's work in applying the Equator Principles governing project finance. It also traces the bank's progress on developing sustainability products and services in areas such as climate change, microfinance and socially responsible investment (SRI) funds.

Staff activities in support of local communities around the world are covered, as is the launch in 2005 of the ABN AMRO Foundation, an independent institution that formalizes the bank's community investment activities.

Ranked No. 1 in the banking sector of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index - STOXX in 2005 and declared Gold Medal Award winner by the World Environment Center, ABN AMRO operates in 58 countries and has around 98,000 employees.
