A Second Party Opinion has been prepared by ISS ESG, which includes a positive alignment assessment against all aspects of the EU Taxonomy Climate Delegated Act (Technical Screening Criteria, Do No Significant Harm and Minimum Social Safeguards.

SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge believes that green finance instruments are an effective tool to channel investments to projects that have demonstrated climate benefits and thereby contribute to the achievement of the SDGs set out by the United Nations. By issuing green finance instruments, SpareBank 1 Nord-Norge intends to align its funding strategy with its mission, sustainability and climate strategy and targets.
