The Dutch government stimulates sustainable entrepreneurship. There are international and national regulations regarding corporate social responsibility. In order to determine whether your application complies with these regulations, Atradius Dutch State Business will assess not only the financial risk you will be running on your buyer, but also the environmental and social impacts of the project for which your goods and/or services are destined.

The Dutch government wants companies to operate responsibly both in the Netherlands and abroad. We therefore encourage you to observe the OECD guidelines’ recommendations to the fullest extent possible. These guidelines contain recommendations for conducting your business sustainably.

Environmental and social issues play a growing role in our society. Therefore Atradius DSB, on behalf of the Dutch State, will insure export transactions and investments abroad only if we are of the opinion that they have no unacceptable environmental or social impacts. They may furthermore not be associated in any way with issues such as bribery or abuses of human rights.

Atradius DSB describes in the policy statement CSR her mission and vision as well as her approach to corporate social responsibility.

The policy statement on human rights sets out the business approach of Atradius DSB and the choices she has made regarding human rights.


Atradius DSB values transparency and wishes to communicate openly with her stakeholders. The information disclosure policy shows you which information is made available when and how. The policy also describes which information is publicly available and which information cannot be shared because of a confidential nature. Atradius DSB therefore needs to safeguard a proper balance between, on the one hand, acting as transparently as possible and, on the other, making sure not to damage the confidence of exporters, banks and buyers. Under downloads you find the Information Disclosure Policy.
