VBDO: Launch of questionnaire on international sustainability benchmark in financial sector

27 October 2015

Eurosif's Dutch member, the Association of Investors for Sustainable Development (VBDO), with support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is currently assessing the feasibility of an international sustainability benchmark in the financial sector. The goal of these benchmarks is to stimulate financial institutions in enhancing their sustainability performance.

This feasibility study aims to identify in which financial sub-sector and on which theme a benchmark will be most effective to enhance sustainability performance. An important part of this study is the consultation of a wide group of stakeholders, including financial institutions, academics, governments and the civil society, through a questionnaire and stakeholder meetings.

We cordially invite you to participate in this unique initiative. The questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. Please respond before 6 November.

Your input is greatly appreciated. The questionnaire results will be anonymous information only, and you will not be identifiable in any published results.
