NEFCO is an international financial institution (IFI) established by the Nordic countries in 1990 with the objective to generate positive environmental impact of interest to the Nordic countries. NEFCO finances private and public projects related to green growth and climate mitigation and adaptation, with particular focus on Eastern Europe, as well as the Baltic Sea, Arctic and Barents regions.
NEFCO is fund manager of Nopef since 2014. Since 2017, NEFCO has had a mandate to invest in green projects globally, thus creating increased synergies with Nopef. While Nopef supports the early stage of internationalisation of Nordic SMEs and mid-cap companies, NEFCO can facilitate the scale-up of these on global markets by offering loan or equity-type financing in the critical growth phase to complement other types of financing.
