SEB: SEB the only Nordic bank in Dow Jones Sustainability Index

SEB
is the only Nordic bank included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the
most recognised global sustainability ranking for investors.

The rankings are based on a comprehensive questionaire with detailed criteria
on some 20 different categories relating to economic, environmental and
social responsibility.

"We have, for many years, worked systematically to be included, and we have
now reached the goal. This is the result of our working widely and seriously
with sustainability issues within SEB, and that we can document and account
for this in all parts of the bank," saysCecilia Widebäck West
, Head of Corporate Sustainability at SEB.

In total, there are 20 Nordic companies in the European rankings, including
four new companies this year. SEB is the only Nordic bank, and has an index
rating of 88 out of a possible 100, compared with 78 last year.

Looking at the specific categories, SEB has a rating of 89 for financial
responsibility, 84 for the environmental dimension, and 89 in the social
dimension. Most parameters increase, but the biggest improvement is in the
area of social responsibility.

Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a collaboration between S&P Dow Jones
Indices and asset manager RobecoSAM, which specialises in sustainable
investments.
