We have co-founded the principles of responsible banking

Nordea, as the only Nordic bank, is one of the 30 members in the Core Group of Founding banks of the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) developed together with United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI). Nordea was the first bank in the world using the PRB reporting template. 

Sustainability is an integral part of what we do at Nordea – as a company, in our financing, in our investment and in our advice. Signing principles like this is a natural step on our journey towards becoming a leading bank within sustainability.
