Our approach

SEB has a strong ambition to contribute to sustainable development, and we are committed to supporting our customers in the transformation towards a better world. 

To us, sustainable development means that the economic, social and environmental effects are balanced in all our business decisions. It also means aligning our strategy to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Through long term relationships and highly committed people we provide innovative products and services, quality advice, along with the highest standards for corporate governance, compliance and risk management.

By doing this we aim to contribute to long term sustainable growth and create value for our customers, shareholders, employees and society at large. 

Part of SEB's business

Sustainability is a key part of SEB’s business strategy.

  • We focus on innovating new products and services to meet the increasingly advanced sustainability needs of our customers.
  • In the transformation of our business we classify the credit portfolio and assets under management according to sustainability criteria and strengthen advisory services to assist our customers in their transition.
  • We continuously develop and strengthen our own policies, we integrate sustainability KPI’s into incentive programmes for senior managers and enhance the knowledge about sustainability among employees.
