Nordea in society


In 2023, our volunteers supported more than


children and young people in building financial skills through our own projects and partners' projects.

Our Startup & Growth unit organised


meetings between investors and startups in 2022.

Sharing our expertise

We want to be a part of building the future for Nordic people.

We want to help people develop financial skills and inspire them to become entrepreneurs. And we want to support companies in achieving sustainable growth and have opportunity to create new job opportunities.

This way, we can contribute to success stories. Where people push boundaries, pursue their passion, do things together and realise their dreams.

Our employees have the privilege of being able to take part in volunteering projects and promote financial skills and entrepreneurship.

Three areas we focus on

Building financial wellbeing

We teach budgeting, saving, digital skills and better financial decision-making to help people manage their finances better.  
We cooperate with non-profit organisations for a bigger impact.

Enabling entrepreneurship

We share expertise, collaborate with non-profit organisations and help entrepreneurs to build networks to enable sustainable growth.

Increasing social belonging

In 2022 we launched a new programme to focus especially on refugees, and how they can more quickly feel they are part of the society, stay safe from fraud, get employed or start own business.

How we share


Donations this year have focused on supporting the people of Ukraine. Otherwise, charitable contributions are always pro bono and relate to building financial skills.


All Nordea employees have the opportunity to spend two paid working days per year volunteering under one of our community engagement programmes. For example, they might teach young people financial skills or participate in activities and events aimed at supporting entrepreneurship. 

Did you know that last year alone we spent 8,000 hours in different programmes?


We can share a lot of our expertise to support ideas and help companies grow. Via our entrepreneur programmes, we connect startups and scaleups with suitable investors, participate in mentor programmes and sponsor various initiatives. We create forums, take part in events and connect our customers with each other so they can grow together.

Did you know that last year we connected hundreds of founders with investors under our Investor Speed Dating programme?
