To this end, we are actively contributing today with various actions and initiatives.
"Sustainable tomorrow" is not just a term for NBG. Every day we work responsibly to address the impact of climate change and support the transition to an economy that makes it happen.
We are leaders in financing sustainable energy and green economy.
In October 2020, we issued the first green senior bond of EUR 500 million, from a Greek bank, aiming to allocate all the funds raised to finance green economy projects. Learn more.
We apply standards and environmentally responsible practices and we have signed the UNEP FI Principles of Responsible Banking (PRB).
Our goal as the “Energy Bank” is to achieve a neutral carbon footprint and at the same time protect biodiversity and the ecosystem's health.

We source 97.5% of our energy from renewable sources, we are renewing our car fleet with electric cars, we are upgrading the energy efficiency of our buildings and we are planning other actions as well, such as minimizing paper consumption.
