Climate change, biodiversity loss, and water scarcity are signs of unprecedented pressure on the environment and the planet’s ecological limits. NIBC is committed to reducing negative impacts on the environment in our business activities and helping clients in their transition towards more responsible practices.
NIBC is “carbon neutral” in its own operations, an accomplishment which few banks have managed to achieve. Since 2010, we have measured our carbon emissions, realised substantial reductions and purchased certified gold standard carbon offsets for any remaining emissions. In addition, 100% of electricity used in NIBC’s facilities is purchased from clean, renewable sources.
We support our clients in their mitigation and adaption strategies for climate change risks. NIBC screens our corporate financings and investments to reduce negative impacts on the environment and biodiversity. Many of NIBC’s financings and investments support the transition to affordable and clean energy, needed infrastructure, responsible production and operations, and sustainable communities.
