We support sustainable initiatives with green loans

By offering green loans, your business will receive financing for investments with sustainable solutions. Green loans support important environmental needs and provide security to investors, as your company will receive a certificate from DNV GL.

What is a green loan?

A green loan is a type of financing where funding goes to projects and investments with environmental benefits. We have established an overall framework that indicates which activities qualify for green loans in collaboration with the leading ESG rating provider Sustainalytics. DNV GL assesses each loan and issues a green certificate for eligible loans based on objective criteria.

What does this mean to you?

This means that your company can finance and refinance green activities, such as renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. In the process, we consider the following: 
  • Which green projects and investments are financed? 
  • Which environmental effects does the company achieve? 
  • How is financing followed up by the company? 
  • How is the reporting conducted? 
DNB's framework is based on the Green Loan Principles (GLP) which are general guidelines established by global financial players. Read more about DNB's framework here.
