Which Nova KBM clients need to complete an ESG questionnaire to take out a loan and why?

The ESG questionnaire was introduced into our lending process on 1 July 2021 in accordance with our adopted ESG Strategy and EU banking regulations. The questionnaire has been an integral part of the credit documentation ever since.


As a responsible financial institution, Nova KBM is actively involved in the fulfilment of global goals regarding sustainable development, transition to low-carbon business, and other goals that are important for society as a whole. The questionnaire aims to ensure timely and prudent identification of ESG risks that may have an important impact on a company’s operations in the future. Your company will be assigned an ESG risk rating based on the completed questionnaire.
