Some words of inspiration from our experts

Therese Ruth
CEO and Founder
Hemma

"We look forward to this cooperation as we hope it will enable us to further improve the technical platform we have built to assess, validate and monitor green investments in private homes. It is essential that the industry finds common ground and definitions to accelerate lending to efforts that will make a significant contribution to a carbon neutral economy. We look forward to participating in hands on market testing in cooperation with our industry colleagues.”

Luca Bertalot

Secretary General at EMF-ECBC

“As the coordinator of the Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative (EEMI), we are delighted to participate in the Nordic Energy Efficient Mortgage (NEEM) Hub which represents a very significant step forward in our vision to roll out energy efficient mortgage ‘ecosystems’ across Europe and beyond. The particularly innovative aspect of NEEM is its focus on consumer behavioural research and digitalisation/FinTech – we are confident that NEEM will be very instructive for other national hubs in these respects.”

Anders Langworth

Head of Group Sustainability

Nordea Bank Abp

“We at Nordea are proud to be part of the front-running efforts by the Nordic Energy Efficient Mortgage hub. The ongoing sustainability transition is crucial for our shared future, and we are determined to drive towards societies goals. Our role in testing out the proposed measures is an essential one, and we look forward to shaping a plan that has the practicality and resilience to truly make a difference.”

Marianne Haahr

Executive Director
Green Digital Finance Alliance

"Technology is making homes smarter,
greener, more sustainable, and cheaper
to heat and power. As part of the NEEM Hub, we will use our expertise to package data related to these advances in ways that will empower Nordic society to strive for greener homes."

Jonas Bjarke Jensen

Senior Economist

Copenhagen Economics

"As a leading European economic consultancy with Nordic roots, Copenhagen Economics are proud to head such a distinguished team. Our expertise within financial, climate and energy market economics will help in the creation of targeted tools for identifying customers in need of energy renovations."

Jossi Steen-Knudsen COO

iNudgeyou

"Today, a huge gap exists between the intention and the action to conduct energy renovations. By applying insights from behavioral science, we wish to overcome the various barriers and make it easy and safe for houseowners to go from intention to action."

Fredrik Nilzén

Head of Group Sustainability Swedbank

"Swedbank’s vision is a financially sound and sustainable society where Swedbank empowers the many people and businesses to create a better future. To drive that change you cannot do alone. We are excited to be a part of the Nordic initiative that really wants to make a concrete difference in enabling people towards sustainable mortgages and housing."

Johan Hansing
Head of Department 

Swedish Bankers Association

"We are delighted to support the Nordic Energy Efficient Mortgage hub on how to scale-up lending for energy efficiency mortgages. With our insights into the banking sector in the Nordics, we aim to contribute to reliable and functional solutions that will prove effective for reducing emissions and supporting the Green Deal.”
