Green Lending

Green Lending

Green lending is a selected pool of projects financed by SEK, which promotes the transition to low-carbon and climate resilient growth, as determined by SEK through an evaluation process


Environmental and social responsibility is reflected throughout SEK’s business plan. In 2015, SEK took further action to support sustainable and eco-friendly business by setting a target of providing Skr 10 billion in green lending over the next three years. SEK Sustainability Department assesses as to whether a project qualifies as an Eligible Project and validates reported reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.

Reductions of CO2 emissions will be measured on a project basis in proportion to the percentage financed by SEK. CO2 reduction calculations follow the baseline methodology set out in the International Financial Institution Framework for a Harmonised Approach to Greenhouse Gas Accounting November 2012. SEK also participates in the Green Bond market to promote sustainability.
