ING Group (“ING”) is a global financial institution with a strong European base, offering banking services in more than 40 countries.
ING’s Annual Report 2014 is the company’s first integrated report, bringing the core of strategy and activities forward. It is more concise, better accessible through functional use of graphs and photos and with compelling text. The decision of making an integrated report resulted from integrated thinking, thorough preparations, a highly motived multidisciplinary team and a supportive Board. The number of pages of the integrated part within the ING Annual Report, plus Sustainability Annex was reduced by 54%. The integrated report was well received which was reflected in compliments received from experts in the financial and integrated reporting field as well as investors.
