For a greener real estate industry

Real estate, buildings and facilities use a significant proportion of society’s energy and resource consumption. The industry also produces large quantities of waste. It’s a big footprint – but it also gives room for great opportunities.

Illustration showing that buildings are responsible for 40 per cent of energy use, use 40 per cent of material resources and produce 25 per cent of the waste in Norway.

Green real estate

A greener real estate industry is key to Norway succeeding in reducing CO2 emissions and making more energy available to other areas of society.

In other words, the industry has an important part to play in the transition to a low-emission society, both by upgrading existing buildings to run more efficiently and through sustainable construction of new buildings.

We know that a greener built environment is both profitable and sustainable.

Our contribution

More and more people are concerned about which buildings they live in, which buildings they work in and thereby also which buildings we invest in. In DNB, we’re keen to contribute to raising this awareness and want to help and encourage our customers to make green choices.

We have two measures that are contributing to the changes:

Sustainability guidelines

It’s important that our customers include sustainability as part of their strategy. We’ve therefore introduced expectations to our customers who are looking for real estate financing. These expectations won’t only ensure the best for the environment, but also safeguard profitability.
