Sustainability Policy

From the start, Swedbank has tried to find financial solutions to the most pressing problems for individuals, businesses and societies. Promoting a sound and sustainable society is our main competitive edge in attracting customers, staff and investors. 

Being an inclusive bank - caring for and being open to all customers and employees regardless of their economic situation, age, gender, ethnicity, sexual identity or disability - is the key to a market share that has enabled us to create leading bank services. Our success as a bank is inextricably linked to helping meet the social and environmental challenges of our times.


Swedbank's Sustainability Policy applies for Swedbank AB and all subsidiaries. The Sustainability Policy is the proactive partner of the Code of Conduct.
