Updated framework 2019:
SBAB Group Green Bond Framework 2019
SBAB’s aim is to finance its green lending by way of green funding. As a step in that direction, SBAB, as the first bank in Sweden, successfully issued its first green bond in Mid-2016. By updating its Green Bond Framework, SBAB wish to offer investors further insight on SBAB’s sustainability strategy in line with SBAB’s commitments. It is important for SBAB to continue to promote, and offer investors the opportunity to support, the transition to a low carbon and climate resilient society by mitigating or adapting to climate change through the funding of green buildings and buildings which are or will become more energy efficient.
The SBAB Group Green Bond Framework 2019 enables (i) SBAB to issue notes in the form of green bonds under SBAB’s Euro Medium Term Note Programme (as amended from time to time) in force at the relevant issue date; and (ii) SCBC to issue covered bonds in the form of green bonds under SCBC’s Euro Medium Term Covered Note Programme (as amended from time to time) in force at the relevant issue date.
