The FT on financing the circular economy

In an interview with the Financial Times, ING's vice-chairman Koos Timmermans explains on the basis of the bank's recent circular economy report that “banks are facilitators for the economy. If the economy changes, we have to make sure we adapt our products”.

Financing the circular economy is a key pillar of the sustainability strategy of ING. The recently issued ING report 'Rethinking finance in a circular economy' looks at how growth in circular business models could affect the finance sector.
