SUSTAINABLE RELATIONS TO NATURE

The Nova KBM Group recognised among its strategic stakeholders also the natural environment. Since the Bank, as a service provider, wants to act in a sustainable and socially responsible manner also in this area, it has identified its impacts on the natural environment. The biggest impacts that can be managed by the Bank include energy, the use of resources, and banking products that can stimulate responsible management of the natural environment by other entities present on the market.

ENERGY

Energy management is a vast field, as the Bank’s business activity is geographically dispersed. The key areas of the Bank’s energy management include efficient use of energy and sustainable mobility.


 

 

ECO-FRIENDLY PRINTING

As the Bank is a service company, its largest consumption of primary raw materials relates to the consumption of paper; and at the same time, its activity requires considerable amount of printing, which is why the Bank is using enviromental friendly machines and toners.

 
 

PAPER CONSUMPTION

Separation of waste materials at source is a key element of circular economy. The Bank has been conducting separate collection of waste for many years, which depends on ordinances of individual municipalities and their concessionaires. 100 % of non-hazardous waste, which is separately collected and disposed of, is sent to recycling.

 
 

RESPONSIBLE INVESTING

As investors we participated in the issue of the first green bond, the new financial instrument in Slovenia, which was developed by GEN-I Sonce.
