Collaboration at KBN

KBN collaborates with a wide range of organisations and networks in order to fulfil its social function in the best possible way.


KBN and CICERO have created a climate risk tool for the local government sector.

Test out your municipality’s climate risk.


We work with the Zero Emission Resource Foundation (ZERO) on local government climate issues, including the annual awards for the best local government climate measures.

Norwegian Climate Foundation

We work with the Norwegian Climate Foundation on communicating knowledge on local government climate risk and energy efficiency measures, and we have produced two booklets together (only available in Norwegian):
Climate Risk -  What Can You Do at Your Municipality? and
Save and produce more energy, an inspirational booklet for municipalities 

Young Enterprises Norway

KBN has a collaboration agreement with Ungt Entreprenørskap
(Young Enterprises Norway) to help increase awareness of social entrepreneurship and sustainability in Norwegian lower secondary schools.

We collaborate with the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS), the Norwegian Association of Local Government Treasurers and Finance Managers (NKK) and the Norwegian Association of Local Government Auditors (NKRF) in relation to the annual Municipality Finance Conference (Kommuneøkonomikonferansen), the most important specialist and social arena for those involved in the local government sector and local government finance.

We are a contributor to the “Nordic Public Sector Issuers’ Position Paper on Green Bond Impact Reporting”, which is a guide to green impact reporting.


We are a member of the Executive Committee of the Green Bond Principles, which is the leading international industry standard for green bonds.

We are a member of the EAPB (the European Association of Public Banks), which is an interest group for public sector banks, and we are also on its Board.
