Green Business Loans

Finance your investments that are beneficial for the environment with our Green Business Loan.

Green financing

Green Business Loans are part of Nordea’s contribution to a sustainable society. If you are planning or have made investments that have positive climate impacts, Nordea’s Green Business Loans are the right choice for you. Among such initiatives in support of sustainable growth are the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions or utilisation of renewable energy sources.

How a Green Business Loan works

  • The entire value chain operates sustainably. The loan is based on green financing available on the market, which is earmarked for projects with environmental benefits. 

  • A company undertakes to use the loan for a sustainable project that meets Nordea’s Green Bond Framework criteria. The company must be able to demonstrate the investment’s positive impact on its consumption of electricity or water, for example.

  • Green Business Loans can be used for financing investment projects belonging to six different categories. Read more under “Project categories”.
