ING Solidarity Awards 2023 – 11th edition

Solidarity is not an empty word at ING!

On Thursday 7 December, 7 non-profit organisations stepped on stage to be awarded a prize during the 11th edition of the ING Solidarity Awards!

Empowering the Luxembourg non-profit scene

As every year, one of ING's objectives is to support and promote the Luxembourg non-profit sector, which often still lacks the funds and resources to achieve its goals despite the remarkable work they are carrying out.

The contest

This year, the seven-member jury selected six projects in three categories, each of which received a cheque of 5,000 €. In addition, the jury had the possibility to award an extra prize, called “Coup de Coeur”, of 5,000 € to one more association this year. 

The categories

  • Financial inclusion: Any project of entities working to improve the financial condition of individuals, for example through education or social and economic integration.

  • Environmental protection: Any project by institutions working to protect the environment, for example by counteracting the effects of climate change.

  • Inclusion: Any project that encourages social inclusion, promotes social links between individuals, or other projects that have a positive impact on society in areas other than financial inclusion or environmental protection.

List of winners in each category:

1.      Category “Financial inclusion”

  • Toutes à l’école Luxembourg 
  • Tsara Fo

2.      Category “Environmental protection”

  • On.perfekt
  • Kass-Haff

3.      Category ”Inclusion”

This year’s “Coup de Coeur” prize goes to:

The 7-person jury is composed of people from both inside and outside ING. Together they determined the most convincing projects in terms of value, impact and method of implementation.

ING profile 

Operating in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg since 1960, ING is a universal and accessible bank with well-developed and user-friendly digital channels, appreciated by our retail, private and wholesale banking customer base, as well as a more personal contact through our network of branches. With over 100,000 customers, ING is one of Luxembourg’s top 5 banks and one of the country’s top 10 brands (source: 2018 KPMG Luxembourg Customer Experience Excellence Report).

Our aim is to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business. We believe the role of a financial institution is to support and promote economic, social and environmental progress at the same time as it generates healthy returns for shareholders.

Always at the cutting edge as regards digitisation, we were the first high-street bank to launch an online account in Luxembourg. With over 800 employees in the Grand Duchy (700 of whom are at our head office: ING Lux House) and thanks to the combination of our local presence and the strength of a robust multinational like ING, we offer our personal and business customers a wide range of solutions through the channel of their choice.

We actively contribute to the growth of the local economy, as demonstrated by the significant rise (+16%) in lending volumes during 2017. Our mortgage portfolio continued growing in 2017 (+15%), breaking the EUR 2 billion barrier for the first time.  On both sides of our balance sheet, we posted double-digit growth (+18%) in 2017, reaching EUR 18.5 billion.
