We want to contribute to a sustainable society.

Hemma was founded on the idea of ​​creating financial incentives for households to make big, impactful investments in climate-smart living. Although new energy-efficient buildings are being built, most of the buildings we will be living in by 2050 are already here. Therefore, we must accelerate the conversion of existing homes in order for us to meet our climate targets. At present, there is no mortgage that drives green conversion. We want to change that. Through our green mortgage, we want to ensure that there are clear economic incentives for households to invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
