Energy sector

Energy lies at the heart of the success of nations. The ability to provide ample, flexible, and cheap energy has fuelled the creation of industry, jobs, tax income and welfare across our home markets.

At the same time, energy production is also the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, making it a significant challenge in limiting global warming. In the coming decades, the goal is to completely transform the energy systems we’ve collectively spent hundreds of years building. A transition that will permanently redraw the supply and demand landscape.

Building a low-carbon world together 

For over 165 years, SEB has facilitated societal shifts, from electrification to digitisation.

Today, sustainability is at the core of our efforts. As one of the largest project finance banks in the Nordics we support our clients' transition to more sustainable business models. We believe this is the best way to have a positive impact on climate change.

The role of our energy team is to offer industry-specific, tailored advice and financing solutions for companies at various stages of their transition journey, helping them optimise their capital structure and facilitate development and growth. Investing across the full energy spectrum – generation, distribution, and consumption – involves supporting companies in renewable energy production, ensuring smooth and efficient integration into energy systems, and promoting energy conversion and efficiency for end users.

Our goal is to support our clients in a resilient and orderly transition to a low-carbon economy, ensuring the security of supply, social welfare, and energy security in all our markets.

  • Lending.

  • Bonds.
