Our sustainability work

Our sustainability work

As we impose high standards on our clients, it’s important that we practice what we preach. SEK's sustainability work is governed by our remit, international guidelines and the expectations of our stakeholders. Our work is organized according to a number of focus areas.


Sustainable financing means we assess social and environmental risks when considering lending to exporters and their customers. Our aim is to impose sustainability requirements on all our clients.

We support Global Compact.
Catrin Fransson, President

Business ethics mean we must operate in an ethical way and impose the same requirements on our suppliers and clients. Our aim is for 100 percent of our clients and suppliers to undertake to comply with our guidelines.

Equality and diversity should be natural elements in our workplace. Our target is for at least 40 percent of managers to be women. We also aim for at least 25 percent of employees to have a non-swedish background.

Our own environmental impact mainly comes from our business travel and energy consumption at our offices.
