Sustainability-linked loan funding framework

The “SLL funding framework” will allow Nordea Bank Abp to issue funding/bonds with a reference to the impact of the sustainability-linked loans (SLLs) on Nordea’s balance sheet in a use-of-proceeds (UOP) format. The Nordea SLL framework is unique being both sustainability-linked and use of proceeds (UOP). Nordea has obtained an external review from ISS.


Green bonds

The Nordea green funding framework is consistent with the green bond principles as formulated by the international capital market association. Nordea has obtained a second party opinion from ISS ESG on the Nordea green funding framework and green bond assets.
