Environment

We believe that our success as a bank is inextricably linked to helping meet the social and environmental challenges of our times. We act on this in our customer service, our asset management, our credits and our product development as well as in own operations.

Internal sustainability work

Our biggest environmental impact is generated indirectly through our financing, investments, payments and procurement. Despite that direct impacts are fairly limited, it is our responsibility, to the best of our ability, to minimise and report our carbon footprint.

Climate change

One of the most serious challenges facing society, our customers and our business, is the ongoing climate change. We want to take an active part to contribute, within our sphere of influence, to reach a stable climate.

Environmental targets and focus areas

Swedbank has set Group wide targets for environment and specifically climate which we have identified as one of the most critical and material environmental issues for our business.

Sustainable services and products

We analyze risks and opportunities in investment- and credit decisions. We also assist our customers in reaching their individual financial objectives and help them understand how to take environmental consideration.
