Heineken removed from a sustainable equity fund

23 May 2018

Dutch ASN Bank has decided to remove Heineken from its sustainable equity fund. The reason for this is the controversy about the use of promotional girls to sell beer, according to a spokesperson for the bank.

The use of promotional girls by Heineken made headlines earlier this year when journalist Olivier van Beemen published his book ‘Bier voor Afrika’. The ASN spokesperson: "We have had discussions about this with Heineken and at this moment we do not see enough is being done."
