As announced earlier, Nordea has committed to becoming a bank with net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest. Nordea was also the first Nordic bank to set a medium-term objective to reduce carbon emissions across its lending and investment portfolios by 40–50% by 2030.
The transition to a climate-neutral economy requires strong commitment and actions throughout society. At Nordea, sustainability is integrated into all aspects of the business, including product offerings, advisory sessions, investment and financing decisions, and risk management.
“Sustainability is at the core of our strategy. We have an important responsibility to support our customers and broader society in the transition towards net zero. Sustainability is an integrated part of our value proposition to customers, how we run the bank, organise our internal operations and manage our risks,” says President and Group CEO Frank Vang-Jensen.
