A sustainable future does not come on its own. It requires significant changes and significant changes require joint efforts. Sydbank has signed the UN Principles for Responsible Banking, which will boost the Bank’s efforts to contribute to a sustainable transition.
Sydbank’s Impact Analysis is prepared as part of Sydbank’s implementation of the UN Principles for Responsible Banking and also serves as a contribution to comply with the recommendations of the Forum for Sustainable Finance focusing on CO₂ emissions.
The purpose of an impact analysis is to identify the areas of activity where the Bank’s existing business model and business volume relative to the 17 UN Sustainability Development Goals have the most significant negative and positive impact in terms of people, the environment, and the economy. The analysis includes activities within the Bank’s core activities: finance and investment.
