Green Bonds

As a mortgage provider, NN Bank wants to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in houses, by offering financing options to make homes more sustainable. NN Bank believes that Green Bonds are an effective funding tool to channel financing to projects that have demonstrated clear environmental or climate benefits and contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. By issuing Green Bonds, NN Bank intends to align its funding strategy with its mission and sustainability strategy.

Green Bond Framework

In June 2021, NN Bank established its Green Bond Framework, with the aim to finance Green Buildings. Under this Green Bond Framework, NN Bank and its subsidiaries may issue Green Bonds to finance and/or refinance mortgages for energy efficient residential properties in the Netherlands.
