The Bank of Åland’s sustainability strategy

Our sustainability strategy has four areas of responsibility

Responsible investments

Our ambition is to obtain a basic knowledge of the operations of the companies we invest in and, above all, to thoroughly examine the sustainability of these business operations.

Responsible lending

Our main task shall be to finance housing for private individuals and to support our customers' savings and investment activities.

Social responsibility

We work actively with social sustainability, which is about inclusion, equal worth, sound values and a deep involvement in the community as a company.

Environmental responsibility

Our ambition is to raise awareness of our carbon dioxide emissions and to continuously reduce them.

Supporting environmental projects has been a part of the Bank of Åland’s activities since 1997.
