A structured and transparent working method is a prerequisite for success.
At Norion Bank, caring means that we take responsibility for how our business is conducted, where a structured and transparent way of working is fundamental for good business ethics. As a bank, we have a responsibility to run a business that enables positive impacts. Our customers have different means for carrying out sustainability work and we therefore give great importance to supporting our customers in their transition.
Through our governing documents, such as our sustainability policy, code of conduct and environmental policy, we create conditions for our employees to appreciate how the organization should work in order to be a business partner that conducts business with consideration. We engage in continuous dialogue with our stakeholders to understand their Caring is also about reducing emissions from our own operations from our office buildings, purchases, and travel. We want our offices to be as environmentally smart as possible and our head office in Gothenburg is gold-classified according to the international environmental standard LEED.
The financial sector also needs to work together to create a sustainable transition and Norion Bank have therefore signed the UN's Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB). The principles set the framework for a sustainable banking system and help us conduct business with care. Through the initiative, we commit to align our business operations with the Paris Agreement and to contribute to the UN's sustainability goals. We evaluate our operations annually to identify areas for development. We have also signed the UN's Global Compact and undertake to conduct our business according to principles linked to working conditions, the environment, human rights, and anti-corruption.
