Swedbank establishes a framework for Green Bonds
To enhance its sustainability commitment Swedbank has established a framework to enable the issuance of Green Bonds. Green Bonds will be used to finance sectors with a high degree of transition to low-carbon and where environmental benefits are clear.
Swedbank believes that climate change is among society’s greatest challenges, and by establishing a framework for Green Bonds Swedbank is strengthening its ability to further support several of UN´s Sustainable Development Goals in Agenda 2030.
