Handelsbanken’s Annual and Sustainability Report contains Handelsbanken’s statutory sustainability reporting as required under the Annual Accounts Act. Unless otherwise stated, the information reported refers to the entire Group. The Sustainability Report is based on stakeholder dialogue undertaken at regular intervals and a materiality analysis carried out in 2022. The Sustainability Report contains descriptions of the Bank’s sustainability governance, business models and processes, as well as activities conducted during the year. To complement the Sustainability Report Handelsbanken also publishes a Sustainability Factbook including detailed breakdowns of results, GRI indexes and Handelsbanken’s reporting under the Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB). The Sustainability Report has been reviewed by the Bank’s external auditors.
Handelsbanken has begun to review the requirements in the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and will continue to work towards implementing expanded reporting requirements.
