Green Loans

We offer green loans with lower interest rates for investments that solve the climate challenges of the future today.

It pays to go green 

Green loans are granted to projects that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency and/or constitute an adaptation to climate change. KBN’s green loans are financed by green bonds.
