SEB’s process on identifying the most material issues is based on an on-going engagement with our stakeholders in combination with our own assessment of issues that are of strategic importance for our business.
As a bank, our boundaries are set in relation to how we impact – indirect and direct. Through our large indirect impact we aim to proportionally avoid causing, contributing or being directly linked to negative impact through our products and services. At the same time, SEB strives to create positive indirect and direct impact in line with our vision and strategy, commitment to international standards such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Swedish law and international regulations and guidelines – such as the Paris Agreement, recommendations from TCFD and the EU Commission – provide the foundation for SEB’s analysis of material matters.
