Handelsbanken also has the ambition to be recognized as the most sustainable bank. According to the Norwegian Sustainability Barometer 2023, Handelsbanken in Norway is considered Norway’s third most sustainable business by customers. Handelsbanken’s head office and six bank branches have been certified as an ‘Environmental Lighthouse’ since June 2023, which means that environmental and climate work is incorporated into the management system and is regularly followed up by management. We are working to certify the rest of the offices continuously.
In the Ethical Bank Guide, Handelsbanken scores weaker. This is because the Ethical Bank Guide is a ranking that assesses publicly available documents; it is not an assessment of how companies actually work with sustainability and ethics in practice.
In the review, Handelsbanken gets a good score on important areas for the bank - such as policy documents and guidelines for climate change, while the bank gets a poor score in areas where it does not operate, and therefore does not have policies (such as weapons).
The Ethical Bank Guide is based on policies from the group level, and does not reward Norwegian documents, such as documents dealing with compliance with the Transparency Act (about human rights).
Handelsbanken is committed to the bank’s business model being responsible and sustainable. The model and culture are built on long-term, low risk tolerance, the customer’s best interest, and decentralized responsibility - which in sum contributes to choices that serve both society and customers.
Yes, you will get this at Handelsbanken! They are working on getting this in place, but do not have an exact date yet.
