The Dutch Fair Bank Guide (Eerlijke Bankwijzer) is an initiative of Oxfam Novib, Amnesty International Netherlands, the Dutch labour union FNV and Friends of the Earth Netherlands (Milieudefensie). It is a dynamic database developed to benchmark the largest 10 Dutch consumer banks on various social, economic and environmental sectors and issues. It is an overview of the banks’ policies on issues like climate change, human rights, labour rights, arms trade, transparency and sectors like oil/gas, fishery, banking, etc. The database is freely accessible to the general public.
The Dutch Fair Bank Guide was formally launched on 22 January 2009. After this successful start in the Netherlands, partners of Oxfam Novib and FNV launched a Brazilian version in April 2011. A first preparatory meeting for a possible Indonesian version has been organized in Indonesia in September 2011.
