Our Sustainability Committee

In recognition of the strategic importance of sustainability, we have established a Sustainability Committee. It monitors the regulatory and market-induced developments in the area of sustainability and ensures their reconciliation with the requirements of the borrowers / house banks and the Bank’s objectives. Sustainability is thus firmly anchored in the Bank’s organisation. Since the fourth quarter of 2022, the Committee has taken the form of an extended Board meeting.

Led by our Managing Board Chairman, the Committee has thus become the highest body for sustainability topics below the Managing Board and is responsible for NRW.BANK’s strategic and overarching business policy decisions with regard to sustainability. This means that binding decisions can now be taken directly by the Sustainability Committee with participation of NRW.BANK’s full Managing Board. In keeping with the principle of overall responsibility, the management circle is informed about the status of all sustainability issues.

NRW.BANK implements the sustainability principles also in its capital market business. Building on its sustainable promotional business, the Bank issues Green and Social Bonds and enables investors to participate in projects with special environmental and social benefits. The Bank thus generates sustainable income for its investors.
