At TF Bank, our goal is to contribute to financial inclusion by offering responsible lending. In a functioning economy, responsible lending is a necessary and important product category. We want to give our customers the opportunity to access the products and services they are in need of in a sustainable and responsible way. In December 2020, TF Bank’s Board of Directors adopted a sustainability program with four focus areas.
The focus areas are a further development of the Bank’s previous focus areas and include both risk and opportunity perspectives. They are based on the materiality analysis and provide a unifying framework for the bank’s sustainability work. The areas have also been developed in the light of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Within each area, a number of measurable KPIs that show the development over time will also be used. In addition to the four focus areas, the Bank also has a number of social partnerships with the aim of making an effort for the most vulnerable.
