Actively supporting the sustainable transition
Why we care
Banks are central for allocating society's financial resources and SEB plays an important role in the transition to a sustainable society. The transition covers areas such as transport, energy and food, and the investments needed to solve the challenges are huge and require a universal commitment.
SEB will be part of the solution because we believe a sustainable society is economically beneficial for all our stakeholders as well as for society at large. To mirror this conviction, we align our strategy with the Paris Agreement and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
In the spotlight: Financial Equality
In Sweden, women own only half as much as men. They earn 10 % less, have a 30 % lower retirement income, and are less likely to own their own house. Those are the statistics, but they don’t have to be.
We believe that financial equality is crucial for a more sustainable society. A society where more women get the freedom that comes with ownership. The freedom to buy a home, start investing or launch a business.
Let’s change the statistics.
