Our values

Everything we do has a tremendous impact. On one another, customers, suppliers, shareholders, society in general. It is therefore of crucial importance that we act with integrity. Particularly in a business where confidentiality is a key factor. Become acquainted with our principles. Our values and codes of conduct. The Orange Code.

With integrity above all, the Orange Code is made up of two parts:

ING Values

The non-negotiable promises we make to the world. The principles we stick to, no matter what.

We are honest

We carefully weigh the impact of our actions and make decisions that are considerate of all involved.
We give honest, clear and frank advice to our customers. We respect the law and the rules we set for ourselves. We expect our customers and suppliers to do the same. We tell the truth. We are open, which means we are honest about what we do while balancing the interests of all involved.

We are prudent

We deal with other people’s money and financial information. Few things in life or business could be more important or more sensitive. 
We put the customer’s interests at the centre of all our activities. They can rightly expect their trust placed in us to be honored, meaning we care and have the right competence to manage their assets, interests and information. We manage financial risks carefully and take such risks only if these risks have been properly assessed.

We are responsible

From the projects we finance to the lighting in our offices, we are mindful that every aspect of our business has social and environmental impact.
We respect human rights and care for the environment, avoiding or managing impact. We engage with our customers to promote continuous improvement. We encourage all forms of diversity, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because it is from different backgrounds and ways of thinking that new ideas spring forth. We invest in our communities, support good causes, and encourage employees to participate in volunteer activities.

Our way of being that makes us different from the rest. The commitments we make to each other and the standards by which we measure performance.
