Invitation to SEB’s sustainability event Transition in Numbers: Towards Net Zero

On 15 November 2022, SEB will hold its annual sustainability event and provide an update on the progress on the bank’s ambitions and goals within the climate area.

One year ago, SEB presented new climate ambitions and goals as part of its sustainability strategy. These were complemented in October with net-zero aligned 2030 interim targets for specific sectors in the credit portfolio, as part of our commitment to the Net-Zero Banking Alliance (NZBA).

At this year’s sustainability event – Transition in Numbers: Towards Net Zero – SEB’s President and CEO Johan Torgeby will provide an update on the progress on these ambitions and goals, present the 2030 sector targets, and speak about how the bank works with its customers and key stakeholders to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society. Among the other speakers and participants are industry leaders, green entrepreneurs and renowned academics addressing the climate issue.

Media, analysts, investors and other stakeholders are invited to participate in the event, which will be broadcast digitally in English on 15 November 2022 at 13.30-17.00 CET. For more information and to register, please visit sebgroup.com/sustainability/netzerotransition, where a replay will be available afterwards.
