In March Nordea’s Sasja Beslik visited Inrego, one of our corporate customers.  He went to Inrego’s factory in Stockholm to learn more about their circular business model: giving life to used computers. Nordea Business Banking’s mission includes being a business partner offering leading financial advice and guidance on matters beyond banking. This customer story shows how business enables the transition towards a sustainable future. 

Together with customers and partners Nordea enables the transition towards a sustainable future. Inrego is a Nordea customer and they are market leaders in the reuse and lifecycle management of computers, phones and other electronic products. They help organisations across Europe to strengthen their sustainability work. As a customer of Nordea, they have chosen us as a sustainable partner and in March they invited us to explore their circular business on site. During the visit Sasja Beslik, Head of Group Sustainable Finance, met with Inrego’s CEO and employees as well as with Skanska, which is a customer of both Inrego and Nordea.

- Our mission is to minimise the environmental impacts of used IT products, says Jonas Karlsson, CEO of Inrego.

Inrego reuses IT equipment that would otherwise have been sent for recycling. This is a tangible example of a corporate customer perspective on sustainability.

- For us as a bank, Inrego is very interesting since they have a sustainable business model. Sustainable business models are crucial to enable a sustainable future, says Sasja Beslik, head of Group Sustainable Finance.

At Nordea Business Banking, our ambition is to be a business partner for our customers offering leading financial advice and guidance on matters beyond banking. We know that corporates play an important role in society, and by supporting businesses from start-ups to mature companies, we help build a better future.

- We build our advice on the idea that having a sustainable business model is essential for a company to withstand future challenges and preserve its ability to stay in business. These aspects are part of what we look at in a company during the yearly review and credit approval processes and may impact how we evaluate risk, says Magnus Montan, Nordic head of Business Banking.
