Community engagement

Building financial skills,
supporting entrepreneurship

We’re very aware that our position as the biggest bank in the Nordic region and one of the largest in Europe brings with it an enormous responsibility – and a great opportunity – to create a positive impact for society.

By focusing on areas where our employees have extensive expertise, we can have more impact and make a real difference. Through own programmes and partnerships, we help people develop better financial and digital skills and support entrepreneurship. Sharing our deep financial expertise and knowledge is our contribution to the communities around us.

Engaging with our local communities through volunteering also helps us gain a deeper understanding of what we need to do to become an even better bank.

We engage with our local communities through:


Nordea employees can spend two paid working days per year volunteering, for example teaching young people financial skills or participating in activities and events aimed at supporting entrepreneurship.

Own programmes

We create and run our own programmes for teaching financial skills and training people in the use of digital tools for daily banking. 

Sponsored partnerships

We sponsor activities at schools and educational institutions and team up with organisations, accelerator programmes and startup hubs across the Nordics.
