Green, Social and Sustainability Bonds

As a major player in the financial market, we can play a part in financing future sustainable innovations. At the same time, by factoring sustainability risks into our decisions, we can reduce social and ecological risks and contribute to a more sustainable business community.

Financing sustainable innovations and services

By issuing Green Bonds, Swedbank has the opportunity to promote and support the long-term development of sustainable solutions through financing sustainable innovations and services.

The Swedbank Green Bond Framework is consistent with the Green Bond Principles 2017 (GBP). Swedbank has obtained a second party opinion from DNV-GL on the Swedbank Green Bond Framework and Green Bond Assets. The framework as described on this website is applicable for all Swedbank Green Bonds.
