Upholding high sustainability standards is integral to FMO's business. Our Moving Frontiers strategy, which aims to further enhance our development impact, emphasizes the importance of meeting environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards. Complying with international standards and ESG criteria has several benefits. FMO has noted that clients who realize a high financial return on investment typically tend to adhere to high ESG standards.

FMO strongly believes that focusing on ESG criteria can help businesses identify opportunities for revenue growth and market access. It stimulates innovation and can help save costs. It can also help businesses increase productivity, enhance access to capital, open up new markets and bring their risk management to a higher level.

We are committed to sharing our sustainability expertise and knowledge with our clients, peers and partners. Through this cooperation, we aim to raise ESG standards among businesses in developing countries.
