Sustainability is now fundamental

The drive for sustainability should now be as fundamental as essential we consider air to be. And if we want clean air to breathe in the future, we've got a lot to do now.

That's why we cannot afford the frivolity of devoting just one page to the subject, and instead believe that it must permeate the Bank's entire operations. We have built this approach not only into the way we operate, but also into our services, our products and even our attitude. Look around and see what you can do to contribute to our sustainability efforts.

To make sure you don't get lost in the information overload, we've put together the most important things you need to know about MagNet's attitude to sustainability. If you want more than that, you'll find it everywhere as you browse our site.

Taking action for the future in the present

From the beginning, our activities have been based on the Triple Bottom Line principles of positive impact on the environment, society and the economy.

As of autumn 2022, a dedicated Sustainability Project Manager coordinates the sustainability functions that cut across the Bank's operations.

Our decision was motivated by the requirements of national and international regulatory requirements and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) risk measurement frameworks, and the realisation that perhaps never before has it been so important what we do as a bank to save our planet's resources and wildlife, and ensure the well-being of our local communities.

Our commitment to sustainability is not a new value, as the community approach we work in has been our guiding principle in all areas since our first years as a community bank. It is based on shared responsibility and conscious choice, as we impact the world with every decision we make. We value those who are responsibly informed, who exercise their right to choose, and who make choices that contribute to a greener and fairer society.
