Sustainable project and export finance

Published: 06.04.2020 We provide financing for the benefit of the German and European economies as part of our statutory mission. As a competent and reliable partner, we are shaping the transition to sustainable economic, social and ecological development worldwide together with our customers.

In this sense, we are making a positive contribution to the implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In 2019, for the second consecutive year, we sorted our new commitments according to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and visualised how our financings contribute to the implementation of the UN Agenda 2030.

In addition to the SDGs, as a bank we are also committed to the Equator Principles and therefore explicitly include social and ecological aspects in our lending decision-making processes, as well as economic aspects.

Dr Günther Bräunig (CEO of KfW Group) explains the newly developed SDG mapping of KfW. The Group thus makes transparent what positive SDG contributions can be expected from its annual new commitments. (in German with English subtitles) (20 September 2019)
