The 500m green bond will be used to finance or refinance residential properties that meet certain environmental criteria.

“We are proud to have been involved in SBAB's work on green bonds for many years. The investor interest in SBAB's first green bond in Euro was over 2.2bn for a 500m issue, which resulted in a very attractive pricing for SBAB,” says Erik Lindkvist, Co-Head of Financials DCM in Danske Bank.
