Quality Standard and the Label for sustainable and socially responsible financial products

Welcome to the website dedicated to the Quality Standard and the Label for sustainable and socially responsible financial products.

The quality standard aims to increase the level of socially responsible and sustainable financial products, and to mainstream its principles towards traditional financial products.

A label aims to instil trust and reassure potential investors that the financial product is managed with sustainability in mind and is not exposed to very unsustainable practices, without requiring of investors to do a detailed analysis themselves. However, transparency on all elements needed for such an analysis should be present.

All types of sustainable financial products, Belgian and non-Belgian, are in principle eligible for the label as long as they can credibly fulfill the requirements of the Quality Standard.

On this site you can find:

  • The list of financial products that have obtained the label
  • The Sustainability ID of each labelled product
  • A presentation of the Central Labelling Agency that awards the labels
  • More information on the Quality Standard

Initial awarding cycle: November 2019 - February 2020

The initial labels are awarded in 2 steps:

  • A first list of labels is published in November 2019
  • This list will be supplemented with an additional set of labels in February 2020
