Our new report for active ownership illustrates the increasing focus on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) topics from an investment perspective. The report for the first half of 2019 shows that the number of ESG topics discussed with companies has increased to 83 compared to 59 in 2018. It illustrates the soar in sustainability issues that could have an impact on company performance and thereby the potential return to Danske Bank’s customers.
