NIB finances green office buildings in Sweden

NIB and the Swedish real estate company Vacse AB (publ) have agreed a 10-year loan of SEK 235 million (approximately EUR 23 million) to finance two BREEAM-certified office buildings in Sweden.

This is the second loan NIB and Vacse AB have agreed for the development and construction of the two multi-tennant office buildings.

The Färgskrapan building in Sollentuna was completed in 2020, and hosts facilities of the Attunda District Court and the Swedish National Court Administration.

In Jönköping, the new head office of the Swedish Board of Agriculture (Jordbruksverket) and the Swedish Forest Agency (Skogsstyrelsen) was completed in spring 2021.

Both properties have a total leasable area of approximately 15,000 square meters, and aim for certification under the BREEAM Excellent standard for green buildings. Due to better energy performance and more efficient use of other resources, BREEAM certified buildings have a higher added value than uncertified properties.

Founded in 2009, Vacse AB (publ) is a real estate company specialising in modern properties with public tenants. Vacse is based in Stockholm and is owned by seven pension funds related to Apoteket, Atlas Copco, Ericsson, Sandvik, Skanska, Stora Enso and Volvo.

NIB is an international financial institution owned by eight member countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. The Bank finances private and public projects in and outside the member countries. NIB has the highest possible credit rating, AAA/Aaa, with the leading rating agencies Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s.
