Sustainability at SEB

Actively supporting the net zero transition.

Actively supporting the sustainable transition.

Banks are central for allocating society's financial resources, and SEB plays an important role in the transition to a net zero society. We are partnering with our clients to lower CO2 emissions in key industries such as energy, transportation and construction.

SEB will be part of the solution because everything we do is guided by our purpose: to positively shape the future, today and for generations to come. Therefore, we align our strategy with the Paris Agreement and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Increase in sustainability activities since 2021.
Reduced fossil fuel exposure in credit portfolio since 2019.
Reduced financed emissions among sectors with 2030 targets (2020–2022).
