Nordea secured a spot on the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index also 2020, marking the fourth uninterrupted year that we have been included in the index. The GEI tracks the financial performance of public companies that have committed to supporting gender equality through policy development, transparency and representation.

"It makes me proud that Nordea once again is on Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index list, but like many other companies, we must step up our efforts when it comes to gender equality. Gender balance and diversity are natural parts of being a sustainable company and something we in Nordea actively work to improve", said Anders Langworth, head of Sustainable Finance at Nordea.

The Bloomberg Equality Index measures gender equality based on five pillars. These include female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, having an inclusive culture, having sexual-harassment policies in place and being a pro-women brand. To be included in the index, firms score at or above a global threshold established by Bloomberg.

“This level of transparency into how companies are tackling gender equality in the workplace and their local communities is fueling financial decision-making around the world, and is supporting the business case for an inclusive corporate environment”, said Bloomberg's Chairman Peter T. Grauer in a statement.

This year the index has expanded to include 325 companies in 42 countries and regions, versus 230 companies in 36 countries and regions last year. The Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index was established in 2016. It is based on voluntary reporting.
