NIB contributes to sustainability through its approach to financing projects. NIB affects its environment mainly via projects it finances and thus the effects are largely indirect. Since one of NIB's two eligibility criteria for lending is to enhance the environment, environmental aspects are well integrated into the Bank's operations. NIB not only finances projects that improve the environment, but also analyses the environmental impacts of each project considered for financing. For NIB, the term "environment" includes both ecological and social aspects.
NIB has provided a EUR 61 million loan to DNB Bank ASA. The funds will be onlent to finance one of northern Europe’s largest onshore wind farms, in Jädraås, eastern Sweden.
