Nature and biodiversity are under pressure posing significant risks to the global economy and societies*. To protect both people and planet as well as the global economy, measures need to be taken to reverse nature loss.
At Danske Bank, we want to be a catalyst for this change by actively engaging with the companies we lend to and invest in.
Therefore, we have conducted an assessment of our lending and investment portfolios to identify the sectors that have the highest potential negative impact on nature and biodiversity.
“Through this assessment, we can get an understanding of the sector impacts on nature and biodiversity. This enables us to interact with customers and investee companies in high-impact sectors and help them understand both their potential impacts on nature and the potential financial risks,” says Kristin Parello-Plesner, Head of Group Sustainability at Danske Bank.
