Companies that are willing to comply with the EU Taxonomy and are contributing to a positive impact on climate change, can be eligible for green financing. This applies also for rather CO2 intensive industries, such as the production of steel, cement or aluminum, as well as for the transport and the energy sector. We support our clients in all aspects of sustainable activities with the corresponding financing.

The focus here is set on the ESG performance of the issuer/borrower and not on a specific investment or project.
