KommuneKredit launches 2025-strategy with sustainability focus
As one of six priorities, sustainability plays an integral part in KommuneKredit’s new strategy. The association wants to integrate sustainability in the business model to support its members’ – the Danish municipalities and regions – climate ambitions and to accommodate the investors’ growing interest in sustainability.
KommuneKredit is undergoing a transformation to future-proof the association as a well-run, accessible and sustainable financial institution that finances local government investments in infrastructure and sustainable transition at the lowest possible cost.
The new strategy, which builds on KommuneKredit’s contributions so far, further increases sustainability efforts across the association – from bond issues and customer service to operational support and reporting.
“Our members have high ambitions for the sustainable transition of local communities. At the same time demand for green bonds and sustainable investments is rising world-wide. It is therefore quite natural that we pay increased attention to integrating sustainability in all parts of our business during the upcoming strategic period,” says CEO Jens Lundager.
The strategy ensures greatest possible growth and development
The ambitions of Strategy 2025 are focused directly on members and customers. KommuneKredit plays an important role in the growth and development of the Danish local communities. Regardless of the size of a project, or where it is carried out, the association offers financing at the lowest possible cost and on equal terms for all. This creates cohesion and provides a breeding ground for municipalities and regions – and ultimately the individual citizen – getting the most growth and development for their money.
We are pulling out all the stops to create a KommuneKredit of the future – for the sole benefit of the association’s customers. In addition to the ambition for integrating sustainability in the business model Strategy 2025 sets out an additional 5 strategic priorities, which set the course for the transition of the coming years:
- The good customer experience
- Steady and stable market player
- Simple and robust IT-foundation
- Transparency and a good reputation
