NIB's Activity Report 2018

Summary

In 2018, most of NIB's long-term financing went to projects that support the economy’s overall efficiency in the use of capital, labour and raw materials.

We also updated our mandate rating framework, which we use to analyse the impact of projects, to better adapt to latest developments in sustainable finance, technology and environmental science.

In addition, we have been active in several Nordic and Baltic sustainability initiatives, and participated in setting new standards for the sustainable finance industry.
