ING publishes 2022 Annual Report
ING publishes 2022 Annual Report
ING today published its 2022 Annual Report. Under the theme “making the difference for people and planet” we give stakeholders an insight into our strategy, business activities and performance over the past year. Our activities are presented in the context of our strategic priorities: providing a superior customer experience and putting sustainability at the heart of what we do.
On Sustainability, the report includes enhanced disclosures around our climate ambition and sustainable finance. With our Terra approach, we aim to steer the most carbon-intensive parts of our loan book towards net zero by 2050. In 2022, to promote immediate action towards decarbonisation, we set intermediate 2030 targets for all nine Terra sectors. We also reinforced our commitment to support the energy transition, announcing an aim to grow new commitments in renewable energy production by 50% by the end of 2025, as compared to 2021. Already, renewables comprise around 60% of our power generation portfolio. In 2022, we also announced to end the provision of dedicated upstream finance to new oil and gas fields.
We also report on the four areas enabling us to execute our strategy: providing a seamless digital experience, using our scalable Tech and Ops, staying safe and secure and unlocking our people’s full potential. On the latter, the report highlights our commitment to diversity, inclusion and belonging, including an analysis of the gender pay gap. We realise there is more to be done in this area, especially on the underrepresentation of women in leadership positions. We introduced a new target of at least 30% female representation in our senior management by 2025 and 35% in 2028. In 2022, that figure was 29%. The report describes initiatives such as changing how we hire, progress and retain talented women, with a bank-wide action plan introduced in 2022.
A major factor in 2022 affecting our company, customers and employees was the war in Ukraine - an immense human tragedy. We decided to do no new business with Russian clients and to get existing exposures repaid as quickly as possible - in effect setting a course for ending our involvement in Russia. Our total Russia-related exposures more than halved from the amount at the end of February 2022. Our global results in connection with these exposures declined sharply as we recognised significant risk costs. This was partly offset by results of our local subsidiary, also driven by interest rate and currency developments. Going forward, we will continue to actively reduce our Russia-related credit exposure.
The report features interviews with ING’s chief executive officer Steven van Rijswijk and Hans Wijers, chairman of the Supervisory Board, as well as sections on Risk Management, Corporate Governance and the definitive consolidated and parent company financial statements. The 2022 Annual Report is available to download on ing.com, along with the 2022 ING Bank Annual Report, Pillar III Report and other relevant documents.
