Global Head of Asset Management, Christian Heiberg, says:
“Setting measureable and ambitious targets for our efforts within responsible investments are cornerstones in delivering on customer expectations looking ahead. We will continue our efforts to strengthen and expand our ESG product shelf, and innovate new sustainable investment products, which we expect to be able to offer in the near future. By doing so, we will advance in our ambition of becoming a facilitator to sustainable change.”
Net zero greenhouse gas emissions
Long term, Danske Bank is stepping up efforts to support society’s ambition of decarbonising the economy. We recently signed the Net Zero Asset Manager Initiative, which represents a group of international asset managers committed to supporting the goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner, in line with the Paris Agreement.
Stephanie Pfeifer, CEO, Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change and Founding Partner of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative says:
“I am delighted to welcome Danske Bank to the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative. This is a vital decade with urgent action needed to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and limit global warming to 1.5°C. Asset managers, including Danske Bank, coming together to commit to net zero targets sends a clear signal that the financial firepower of institutional investors will be dedicated to delivering real progress towards a net zero and resilient future.”
