Belfius has become the 'first Belgian bank' to be awarded a carbon-neutral certification label.

The bank says it has reduced its carbon footprint by 21% since 2012 and participated in a carbon-reduction programme, combined with the offsetting of its residual emissions.

It has also launched an initiative called ‘CO2 Impact Loan’, which aims to help businesses and local authorities in Belgium to become carbon-neutral by providing advice and setting specific borrowing conditions.
