Sustainability

  • Duurzaamheid label

    Consumers today are making increasingly responsible choices. This applies to what they eat, how they travel, but also to their money. They therefore prefer not to invest in activities that are harmful to humans, the environment or society. That is why Febelfin has developed, in consultation with banks, fund managers and civil society, a quality standard for sustainable financial products, such as investment funds. If these products meet the standard, they can obtain a sustainability label. With this standard, Febelfin aims for greater transparency for its clients and wants to encourage the financial sector to take more responsibility in the climate challenges.

  • The Belgian financial sector consults various stakeholders on a proposal for a quality standard for sustainable financial products. The standard includes a sustainability label and several minimum requirements that such a product must meet.

    As of today, April 25, 2018, all interested parties can read the quality standard proposal via the Febelfin website, submit their comments and fill out a short survey.

  • Today, the Energy Efficient Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) Initiative takes another concrete step forward with the second in a series of national Roundtable events, this time focussing on Belgium. The event, organised in Brussels in cooperation with the Flemish Construction Confederation (VCB), brings together experts from the Belgian and European banking, construction, valuation and engineering sectors with a strong interest in building energy efficiency and its financing.

  • Do the children of today want to become tomorrow’s bankers? We have tried to find out by asking many children about their dream job. Ballerina, Prime Minister, baker, etc. Children dream about a lot of jobs, but banking is not included into their list… There is one thing we can be sure of: If we want the future banking sector to be sound and held in high esteem, we’d better start working on it today!

  • On May 8 and 9, Febelfin took part at the biannuel conference of Child and Youth Finance International (CFYI). The main topics were "Innovate, Invest and Celebrate".
