Our goal is to accelerate and advance the adaptation of energy efficient housing in the Netherlands.


15h30 – Nationale-Nederlanden and Woonnu

Woonnu: the sustainable mortgage originator in the Netherlands

Hendrik Jan Luikinga, Chief Investment Officer


Nationale-Nederlanden has set itself some very ambitious objectives in terms of sustainability.  As the 5th mortgage lender in the Dutch market, mortgages represent an important part of the balance sheet. Introducing a ‘green’ mortgage offering is an important step in realising the sustainability objectives of Nationale-Nederlanden.


Woonnu was launched in August 2020 and quickly realised traction in the Dutch market resulting in a 1% market share in Q1 2021. Based on our growing portfolio we are now able to start drawing some initial conclusions on what works well and what needs improvement in terms of consumer proposition and customer journey.


Woonnu looks forward to sharing its experiences and provide other actors in the European market with real-life insights into being a sustainable mortgage originator.
