Sustainability

The Swedish Export Credit Corporation, SEK, believes in the importance of sustainable business. That’s why business ethics and social and environmental risks are given the same weighting as financial risks in our credit decisions.


SEK wants to contribute to a more sustainable world and we believe that sustainable business is increasingly important to the success of Swedish exports. SEK aims to set a good example on sustainability issues and lead developments in this field. We do this primarily by imposing requirements when lending to exporters.
