Helping Nordic green solutions to grow on global markets

How can Nopef support your internationalisation project?

If you represent a Nordic company with a proven solution related to environment protection, renewable energy, climate change mitigation or other type of sustainability, and you plan to expand abroad with your solution, Nopef (Nordic Project Fund) financing can help you on the way.

Nopef finances feasibility studies related to green growth and sustainable development in a country outside EU/Efta for Nordic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and midcap companies. The feasibility studies aim to assess the establishment of long-term business operations in the project country. The main priority is that the project or expansion should contribute to a direct or indirect environmental impact and an increased environmental awareness in the target countries.

The objective of Nopef financing is to facilitate the implementation of Nordic green solutions on a global market and strengthen the international competitiveness of Nordic companies.
