SignPort is one of several components in the EKN ecosystem for secure electronic signatures and contributes to promoting Swedish exports on difficult markets.
Contribution to goal 9: Purchasing countries are given the possibility to make investments thanks to EKN’s guarantees. To achieve the goals in Agenda 2030, investments in low-cost countries and difficult markets are needed, for instance in infrastructure, electrification, farming, environmental technology, and the health sector. These are areas where the Swedish industry is at the cutting edge and can play a significant role in development. Export contributes to spreading Swedish innovations and technology (goal 9).
Contribution to goal 12: EKN also has requirements on exporting companies to conduct responsible business. This means that companies must take responsibility for risk management that might impact on people, the environment, and society in the countries where Swedish goods are used. Swedish export credit systems make it possible for EKN to work with export companies to make requirements on customers that buy Swedish equipment. This leads to improved production and work conditions, which in the longer term will contribute to more sustainable production patterns in various industries and countries (goal 12).
