A sustainable district heating network in the city of Groningen
WarmteStad will provide affordable and renewable heating to more than 10,000 businesses, institutions and households in the city of Groningen. Our bank has, among others, financed the construction of the buried network of pipes for this geothermal heating project. The water flowing through these pipes will be heated by surplus heat from data centres in the district.
WarmteStad is delighted to have found a sustainable partner in NWB, who is going to help us drive the energy transition in Groningen.

Replacing materials and making them more sustainable
We have joined forces with BNG Bank to provide financing to the Amsterdam municipal public transport operator GVB. The financing will be used for the purchase of new trams, metro trains and electric buses. GVB operates the public transport system in greater Amsterdam. Every day, about 875,000 people travel on GVB’s metros, trams, buses and ferries.
GVB wants to be climate neutral from 2025 onwards.
