Swedbank in society

Swedbank’s mission statement includes the bank acting as a positive force in society. It is therefore natural that the Group is involved in various community projects, both locally and across borders. While the projects differs in purpose, extent and geography, the goal remains the same – to be a good corporate citizen that strengthens society and its individual members.

Societal engagement

Societal engagement has played a key role throughout Swedbank’s history. The first savings bank was founded in 1820 to help the general public save and achieve long-term financial security. As a major bank, we are part of and are affected by everything that happens in society. We engage in social issues such as education, youth unemployment and entrepreneurship. Positive development in these areas is important for the development of society as well as for the bank’s business.

Private economy

Swedbank monitors areas that are important for private finances. We analyse and examine how policy decisions and changes in circumstances affect individuals and households, and we work actively to educate the public about personal finance and savings.

Young people and economy

We engage in social issues such as education, youth unemployment and entrepreneurship. Initiatives that help young people to be financially sustainable are important for the development of society as well as for the bank’s business.

Job at Last

Job at Last is an initiative from Swedbank together with the Swedish Public Employment Service to make it easier for foreign-born, job-seeking graduates to get access to relevant employers.
