SEB has created the new unit SEB Greentech to support Nordic companies within the fast evolving green technology sector.

"This is an expression of our ambition to contribute to a sustainable transition. It is critical that young greentech companies gain access to funding at an early stage so they can realize the creation of technologies, products and services that can benefit society, our customers and shareholders," says SEB's President and CEO Johan Torgeby in a statement.
