    We financed major infrastructure projects, such as the electrification of the North-South rail link. We also helped clean up the Emscher River, formerly known as the "Sewer of the Ruhr area", which has been completely wastewater-free since 2021.

    Our financing helped BioNTech to develop its highly effective COVID-19 vaccine at the beginning of the pandemic. We also supported energy-efficient affordable housing and made public transport carbon-free.
