Seeking positive environmental impact
NEFCO’s financing is targeted at small and medium-sized projects (Small and Medium-sized ProjectsSMPs) that can demonstrate positive environmental and climate-related results. We finance green growth and climate projects globally, with particular focus on Eastern Europe, the Baltic Sea, and the Arctic and Barents regions. The aim is to increase the use of proven Nordic green solutions and to enable a catalytic effect and scaleup possibilities.
We facilitate green growth by providing risk capital, loans, grants and environmental expertise. Our objective is to support the scaleup of Nordic smart, green solutions globally and create positive environmental impact.
To support climate change mitigation and adaptation we mobilise new investments and funding for projects related to renewable energy, energy efficiency and the reduction of short-lived climate pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions, in close cooperation with governments, municipalities, companies and other organisations.
Arctic & Barents
We provide financing for project preparation activities, studies and demonstration projects with the aim to further develop and disseminate the best available technologies and practices that contribute to energy efficiency, sustainable use of resources, pollution mitigation and a positive impact on communities in the Arctic and Barents regions.
The reduction of pollutants affecting the Baltic Sea has been a key priority for us from the very beginning. Through our various programmes, we finance both public and private sector projects related to agriculture, wastewater treatment, and hazardous waste within the Baltic Sea catchment area.
