Clean technology

Partnering for a better future in clean technology

Adding value

Financing projects that promote energy efficiency, alternative energy use, smaller carbon footprints and the sustainability of our natural resources. Including specialist solutions for products, services and processes that improve profit or performance while reducing costs, energy use, waste or pollution.

Clean technology facts

  • Positive environmental effect
    In 1 year the clean technology equipment we finance has the same positive environmental impact as planting 700,000 tree samplings over 10 years.
  • Renewable sources
    We continue to grow in the financing of new technologies for energy efficiency, water filtration and other renewable sources.
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions
    The clean technology equipment we financed in 2013 achieved the same reduction in CO2 emissions as 90 km2 of pine forest.
