Sustainability

We want people to be able to live the life they want to live – today and tomorrow. As a company, we have a responsibility for our people, our customers and partners – and for the society as a whole. We work for equality, diversity, inclusion and purpose. We carefully consider the impact on the environment and on people’s lives, and ensure that our credit processes are ethical and sustainable.

Work for good

Resurs is doing volunteer work at local schools, where our employees help young students with their homework during working hours.

It is an indescribable feeling to be able to be there for tomorrow's adults. Helping with the little things can actually make a huge change in society,

Female force

Resurs joined Techella, a community for women in or entering tech, a few years ago and we are proud to be a part of such a great force. As a part of Techella we are active in different events they host, both as representatives and participants – helping each other, exchanging ideas and creating new prerequisites for women in tech.

– A colleague and tech-woman of ours, Sandrine Wallisson, Development Manager and Product Owner for our Checkout Solutions, shared her thoughts on being a part of our company.

“Resurs is a place with fantastic colleagues that build on each other’s ideas. It is a creative environment with room for ideas on how to elevate what we do. During my 4 years at Resurs I have grown on many levels, and never had a dull moment.”

As a bank and as an employer, we have an important role in society, and we take our responsibility seriously. Our work for a sustainable future is a natural part of our business.

Global Compact

Social commitment

Social commitment is important to us, and the aim is to strive for an inclusive society. In addition to a long tradition of involvement as a sponsor in local communities, Resurs’s involvement focuses on supporting young people and new entrants to the labour market to reach their full potential.

We aim to be a positive force in society and contribute in several ways – both with financial sponsoring and in a more active capacity.

Climate smart

Our climate impact is always a top-of-mind priority. We make conscious environment choices in procurement and continue investing in digital services that reduce paper consumption. As for the workplace, we choose renewable electricity and all purchases in our kitchens are made in the best way possible in terms of the environment.

Sustainable perspectives

The work with sustainable social development takes place across the organization. Sustainability should be part of our daily operations and considered in every decision we make. We focus on six areas, chosen in dialogue with our customers, employees, partners and owners. In these areas we have an opportunity to influence and make changes.

Our six focus areas are:

  • Environment
  • Diversity and equality
  • Social responsibility
  • Responsible lending
  • Anticorruption
  • Consumer privacy

Our global goals

Resurs has chosen to focus on six of the Global Goals in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in which we feel that we can contribute the most through our operations.
