However, together with our customers, we can make the biggest green impact. We are committed to making green and sustainable choices more accessible and affordableto our customers be it investors, businesses, homeowners or farmers.

Our focus is on areas in need of green solutions and where Nykredit is uniquely positioned to make a difference. Read more about our initiatives below.
