Rabobank is committed to contribute to a future proof food system. That is a system that revolves around restoring balance and resilience: in nature, in farming and in business models. A system that can lead to make sustainably produced nutritious food affordable, available and accessible for most.
Rabobank’s financial tools include sustainable loans, such as the Green Loan and the Sustainability-linked Loan. Additionally, Rabobank offers support through blended finance solutions, such as the AGRI3 Fund, and stimulates innovation through the Rabo F&A Innovation Fund.
A global team of RaboResearch food and agribusiness analysts, provides sector-specific insights covering everything from farm inputs to consumer foods. Rabobank also supports independent journalism in special reports and videos about Sustainable Food & Agriculture produced by the Financial Times.
To find joint solutions for the challenges at hand, meaningful connections are made with trusted partners – from business, government, civil society and beyond. Through its global network FoodBytes!, Rabobank matches innovators with investors and clients. It also provides a platform to help turn today’s new ideas and technologies into tomorrow’s solutions that create impactful and purposeful change.
Rabobank continuously searches for and develops innovative new financial products and business models that marry economy and ecology. For example, Rabo Carbon Bank helps farmers in developed countries shift to regenerative agricultural practices. Additionally, the Acorn program enables smallholder farmers in developing and emerging regions to generate Carbon Removal Units.
Rabobank is a cooperative bank. Our founders recognized more than 125 years ago that the only way struggling farmers could truly thrive was being cooperative. Each one had their dreams and issues, but they couldn’t realize them alone. How then? They created a cooperative where members collaborate to overcome their larger-than-me-challenges. This has been our mission from the start: Growing a better world together. And it still is today.
