About the entity

Nordic Investment Bank (NIB)
We are the international financial institution of the Nordic and Baltic countries. We work towards a prosperous and sustainable Nordic-Baltic region.

The Nordic–Baltic Blue Bond is NIB’s first listing on Nasdaq Nordic Sustainable Market. The five-year SEK 2 billion bond has been issued under NIB’ Environmental Bond Framework and supports the Bank’s lending to selected wastewater treatment projects, prevention of water pollution and water-related climate change adaptation.

“This is our first Blue Bond and we are pleased to see a very strong outcome. A high quality order book supported by investors that are conscious of the challenges affecting the Baltic Sea area verifies that the investors acknowledge NIB’s work within water and environmental protection”, says Jens Hellerup, Head of Funding and Investor Relations at NIB.

“Our sustainable bond market more than doubled in size during 2018 and the inclusion of the Nordic Investment Bank is strong signal that this growth will continue into 2019,” said Ann-Charlotte Eliasson, European Head of Debt Listings at Nasdaq.” We aim to support all of our clients in their efforts to transition into a more sustainable future and hope that the NIB will inspire further issuers to join the market.”
