Make your sustainable transition happen

Sustainability is a must: The demanding transition

Fulfilling sustainability requirements is often overwhelming, yet no longer optional —companies are required to follow complex rules, collect relevant data, and document their efforts.

As the leading sustainable financial institution in Austria and CEE, RBI is your reliable partner with a proven track record when it comes to reaching your sustainability goals.

Let us accompany you on your sustainability journey with experience-based advisory and tailor-made solutions.

Why sustainability and what's in it for you?

  • The right thing to do: Sustainable finance complements your sustainability strategy and helps you track your ESG goals – while boosting your reputation
  • The necessary thing to do: Sustainable finance will evolve from a ‘nice-to-have’ to a ‘must-have’ according to regulators and politics 
  • The smart thing to do: Optimize cost of funds, profit from tangible monetary advantages and more accurate loan pricing 
  • The responsible thing to do: Broaden your range of financing sources and your investor base
  • The reasonable thing to do: Improve ESG risk management by collecting ESG data, supported by an experienced partner

Let's go green together

Climate change does not only pose the obvious risks for our planet and future, but also directly affects both companies and banks, in different ways. Stranded assets, changes in consumer preferences, tightening regulations, or increasing carbon prices are just some consequences.

As a leader in sustainable banking, we support you on your green transformation journey with:

All companies that commit to complying with the EU Taxonomy and contribute to making a positive impact on climate change — even rather CO2-intensive industries — are eligible for green financing.

We support you in all aspects of sustainable activities by offering solutions specifically tailored to your company’s needs and strategy: 

RBI Sustainable Loan

Loans for future-oriented projects that are aligned with the EU climate strategy goals

ESG-linked Corporate Finance

In addition to core financing transaction support, we offer comprehensive preparatory advisory services: 

In-depth advice & tailored support

on the suitability of different sustainability formats with respect to your business and sustainability strategy.

Our commitment: We're in it for the long run

We are proud of our sustainability-related achievements ever since we signed the UN Global Compact in 2010 and the UNEP Finance Initiative in 2021: By now, RBI holds several green finance leadership awards, is the largest green bond issuer in CEE and Austria, and launched the first EU-Taxonomy-aligned loan this year. What a journey!
