Nordea adopts Equator Principles

21 February 2007

Nordea is the first Nordic bank to adopt the Equator Principles, a voluntary set of environmental and social guidelines for project financing. The Equator Principles is a financial services industry benchmark for assessing and managing social and environmental risk in asset-based project financing.

Nordea is now finalising the internal procedures to ensure that work proceeds according to the guidelines in all applicable project finance cases.
