We aim to make a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate, and to society in general.
Our goal is to support people’s independence so that they can keep ahead of the game. We finance research, donate funds, and share our knowledge, expertise and skills.
Since 2012, ING Luxembourg has been taking part in European Money Week, an initiative of European banking associations to raise awareness of financial literacy and improve financial education. During this week, ING Luxembourg employees inform and raise awareness among primary and secondary school pupils in Luxembourg.
ING Luxembourg also takes part in dayCARE, which gives high school pupils the chance to learn more about Luxembourg companies, what they do, and how to find their way in the job market. Young people’s commitment on this day is rewarded by a donation from the company to a CARE charity project.
The ‘Power for Youth’ programme, which sprung from the partnership between the ING Group and UNICEF, helps teenagers around the world to maximise their potential and thereby improve their own future and that of the people around them. Backed by more than 10 years of cooperation, Power for Youth’s goal is to empower 335,000 teenagers in six developing countries until 2018. The programme aims to help them acquire school learning as well as the necessary social and financial skills to deal with everyday challenges in a responsible, independent way. These young people will then be able to make solid decisions for their own life and future, but also the future of their families and communities.
ING Luxembourg includes its customers and consumers in its approach, for instance by setting up Pop-Up Stores during the marathon or half-marathon it sponsors or Vending Machines of which the profits are donated to volunteer organisations, or through dedicated financial products. Our team also plays a crucial role by enthusiastically investing time and money, like in Run for Youth to the benefit of UNICEF.
