In 2022 this meant:
that we co-financed 185 projects in the sustainable energy sector, with a total generating capacity of 5,500 MW producing the equivalent of the electricity needs of 5.4 million households worldwide (2021: 3.7 million), or 347,600 households (2021: 259,000) based on our share in these projects. These projects were attributing to the avoidance of over 358 ktonne of CO2e emissions (2021: 276 ktonne);
over 42,800 smallholder farmers (2021: 38,000) in nine emerging market countries worldwide were paid directly and fairly upon delivery of their harvests as a result of trade finance provided to farmers’ cooperatives and agribusiness. The farmers had 57,100 hectares of certified organic farmland under cultivation in 2022 (2021: 49,000). An additional 6,000 (2021: 5,800) hectares was in conversion;
that the organically managed land on the European farms which we financed could produce the equivalent of 7.2 million meals, or enough food to provide a sustainable diet for approximately 6,600 people (2021: 6,600). Together approximately 10,800 hectares of organic farmland was financed across Europe;
providing finance to 113 (2021: 111) emerging and well-established financial institutions working for inclusive finance in Latin America, Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa. These institutions reached approximately 20.3 million customers borrowing for a better quality of life (2021: 17.8 million). Approximately 19.9 million people living on low incomes use savings services offered by these institutions (2019: 18.6 million);
that as of the end of 2022, 45% of our Impact Equities and Bonds’ portfolio by net asset value were aligned with or committed to Science-Based Targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Targets are considered to be science-based if they are in line with what the latest climate science says is necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
