Sustainable finance

We believe sustainable business is better business and have been pioneers in helping forward-thinking companies that are driving change to become more sustainable. We have a clear set of objectives and targets, like doubling our Climate Finance portfolio by 2022 and steering our €600 billion portfolio towards being well below the Paris Agreement’s goal of lowering the planet’s average temperature by 2˚ Celsius. In Spain, a local team is focused on supporting companies in a number of sectors with sustainable financing and innovative solutions as they address this challenge.
