SEB is number nine on Bloomberg Markets magazine’s latest list of the world’s greenest banks.
To rank banks’ environmental records, Bloomberg Markets looked at their investments in clean energy and efforts to reduce their own waste and carbon footprints. Bloomberg teams gathered material from annual and corporate social responsibility reports, websites and other public documents covering the banks’ 2013 fiscal years. The magazine supplemented that with follow-up research and verification.
Spain’s Banco Santander, France’s BNP Paribas and Italy’s Unicredit are the top three banks on the list.
