Acting responsibly with a long-term perspective

Sustainability has long been an integral part of our culture and method of working. For us, this means acting responsibly and with a long-term perspective in areas where the Bank can make a difference. We want to promote achievement of the UN Global Goals by integrating them in our business operations, including responsible investment and responsible lending.

Green loans

We can offer our corporate customers green loans – the first of which are green loans for buildings. To secure a green loan, the building must adhere to certain environmental requirements. The building must also be located in Sweden.

Green bonds

We are very active as an advisor to new and existing issuers, companies and institutions that intend to issue green bonds. We offer assistance in establishing terms and conditions, and also when issuing green bonds.
