Brief Overview of Organisation & Summary of Sustainability Strategy
OBOS-Banken is a Norwegian commercial bank mainly focused on retail mortgages and lending to housing companies in Norway. OBOS-Banken is part of the OBOS Group, one of the largest property developers in the Nordics. Since the beginning, OBOS-Banken has contributed to more people being able to enter the housing market by financing housing cooperatives and prioritizing first-time buyers. In response to a housing market that is becoming increasingly difficult to access, OBOS has also developed new purchasing models to make housing more accessible. OBOS-Banken actively contributes by financing homes purchased with these alternative financing models. Sustainability is integral to our strategy and business, and we strive to take social and green responsibility. By signing the principles for sustainable banking, we accelerate our ambitions and commit to minimising our negative impact.
