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, local as well as 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 through 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 are engaged in social issues such as education, youth unemployment and entrepreneurship. Positive development in these areas is important for society’s development as well as for the bank’s business.
