NIB Nordic Investment Bank



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.
