Swedbank’s Sustainability Indicators: towards the 2030 Agenda
  • Sustainability Indicators assess progress towards UN Sustainable development goals
  • Focus on sustainable development identifies business opportunities and highlights risks
  • Sweden should speed up reforms to remain among the leaders, while the Baltics have a lot of catching up to do

Swedbank has developed a new methodology, Sustainability Indicators, to monitor the progress towards the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The aim is to support business looking at ESG (environmental, social, governance) criteria and help to identify weaknesses and strengths in Sweden and the Baltics. There is much unused business potential in Sweden and the Baltics in advancing sustainability, e.g., in making the transition to cleaner and more energy-efficient economies. The Sustainability Indicators show that Sweden has to speed up reforms to remain among the leaders in Europe, while the Baltics have a lot of catching up to do.
