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.
