Organic farming and biodynamic land use, renewable energy, sustainable production and business, and environmentally progressive building and construction.
Sustainable, social housing and ownership, alternative energy forms and resource saving arrangements, facilities for the handicapped and the socially disadvantaged.
Independent schools and kindergartens, community and cultural centres, theatres and music venues.
Naturally, Merkur also provides all the financial services you require, including savings accounts (available with Visa and/or debit cards), PBS payment service, Webbank, and retirement and children’s savings accounts and the full range of financial services for business customers.
A personal financial advisor is available for all account holders and can assist in areas such as savings, pensions, home loans and project advice.
Like other Danish financial institutions, Merkur is covered by obligatory investment guarantees. We do not speculate on the stock exchange or broker shares. Therefore, as a depositor at Merkur you can rest assured that you are doing your part in promoting a sustainable society.
