More than a century
helping the business
Our bank was founded in 1881 in Sabadell, with the aim of supporting the leading sector at the time: the textile industry. From the outset, Banco Sabadell was set up as a bank for companies, focusing on the growth of the cutting-edge developments occurring in local industry. Being a company-oriented bank has been the hallmark of Banco Sabadell, which has remained a leader for business to this day.
In a global environment of growing awareness of climate change and the need to pilot a transition towards a decarbonised economy, in 1997, following the signing of the Kyoto Protocol, Banco Sabadell’s renewable energy investment area was created. Initially, the investment projects many involved mini-hydro plant and later wind farms.
Sinia Renovables, part of BS Capital (Banco Sabadell’s private equity arm), is the investment wing dealing in renewable energies and sustainable businesses. We invest in equity, subordinated loans and construction loans, all of which are compatible solutions with senior financing. In addition, we bring the know-how of a team with more than 20 years of experience in the renewables sector and investment.
After nearly 25 years, at Sinia Renovables we continue with the same spirit: to be at the side of entrepreneurs in the renewable energy and sustainability sector.
