Our approach to sustainability
Handelsbanken’s sustainability goals
At Handelsbanken, we actively work with sustainability goals that originate from the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. For example, the bank aims to be CO2 neutral by 2040. The zero emission target applies, for example, to our loans and investments, but also to our own energy consumption and our business travel.
Sustainability in our business operations
We are committed to our customers, employees and the local communities in which we operate.

Sustainable Development Goals
The goals we focus on
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals consist of 17 goals aimed at achieving sustainable social, environmental and financial development.
We have chosen to focus on six of these goals, all of which are related to our core business. We are convinced that, through our activities, we can contribute to achieving these goals.
