Impact reporting in three easy steps
How do you calculate climate risk and the environmental impact of an investment? This was the topic of a recent seminar organised by KBN and SEB.
KBN’s net interest income in the third quarter of 2017 was NOK 513 million as compared to NOK 572 million in the same period in 2016. The decrease was due to a downwards adjustment to KBN’s interest rate level while other aspects of operations remained stable.
KBN considering issuing an NOK-denominated green bond

Nordic issuers release guide on green bonds impact report
A group of ten Nordic public sector issuers have released a joint position paper on green bonds impact reporting. Developed with the primary aim of assisting Nordic public sector borrowers, the signatories hope that it will prove useful also for issuers from the private sector and from other countries as well as for the investor community. The position paper, which has been 14 months in the making, was launched at the OECD Green Investment Financing Forum in Paris on 24 October.
Seeking environmental projects
KBN offers a lower interest rate for environmentally friendly projects as we want to contribute to the local government sector going green. And we hope more municipalities and county authorities will apply for green loans.
