Open to any bank


With its 20-year history of supporting environmental projects, Ålandsbanken developed the Aland Index to show everyone how to contribute. With this ambition, all other banks are invited to join and use the Aland Index. True change is created together – with you and everyone who is interested in saving our planet.

Ambition in context

We implemented the index to enable you to make informed decisions, and we offer all our competitors to do the same for their clients. However, there is more to the idea than meets the eye:

  1. We set up the Baltic Sea as a hub to create funding for great ideas and understanding by the public. 
  2. We developed a SoMe platform and the bio-sourced Baltic Sea Credit Card to connect all clients of the bank to that ambition. 
  3. The unique credit card has a cause driven design and replaces all other cards in the bank. 
  4. We also connected the index to the card in order to connect your consumption to impact and impact to potential compensation. 

Innovation + Collaboration = Solution
