In this section you will find our press releases, publications, news items and feature stories illustrating what we do and how we invest the money entrusted in us. As a rule of thumb, we publish pieces of news related to new environmental projects only after the loan agreements have been signed.

The corner stones of our disclosure policy are shaped by openness, transparency, objectivity, responsibility towards the contracting states, interaction with third parties and safeguarding client interests.

You can subscribe to our electronic newsletter or our printed customer magazine here. The fastest way to find out what’s going on at NEFCO is to follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn where we share a wide range of news stories related to the sectors in which we work.

Green to Scale: act in time to buy time to act
