The sustainability perspective
Kommuninvest consists of a membership organisation, the Kommuninvest Cooperative Society, with municipalities and regions as its members, and a wholly-owned credit market company, Kommuninvest i Sverige AB.
Our sustainability work is guided by the mandate conferred on us by the members of the Society and expressed in our vision: “to finance the development of Sweden’s local and regional sectors, as well as investments for a sound and sustainable society.”
The owner directives adopted by the members of the Society state that Kommuninvest should contribute to sustainable development by reducing both our direct environmental impact and the indirect environmental impact resulting from lending and investments.
In addition to efforts to reduce environmental impact, our sustainability work also includes efforts to support and develop our role as a responsible employer and corporate citizen.
The international guidelines and principles that we follow include the UN programme for financial institutions (United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative, UNEPFI), the Green Bond Principles and the Green Bond Harmonized Framework for Impact Reporting.
