Today Nordea hosted the Nordic Sustainable Finance Conference, bringing together more than 300 customers and key business leaders from across the Nordic region. Gathering to discuss the urgent matter of why corporates and investors should look to include sustainability considerations into their financial strategies. 

 - This is the second year we’re hosting the sustainable finance conference. It was clear last year that sustainability is high on the agenda in the Nordic region, and that corporates and investors are realising that this is key for their long-term operating and financial performance, says Mathias Leijon, Global Co-Head of Corporate and Investment Banking, who also hosted this event last year together with Sasja Beslik, Head of Group Sustainable Finance.

Demand for sustainable finance solutions is growing rapidly, both among our corporate customers and our investors. Nordea strongly supports this major shift by engaging actively to ensure there is a market for these solutions and capital is allocated towards them. 

Creating scalable solutions

The conference, which took place in Stockholm, provided a unique opportunity to learn about how the broader market is working with sustainability in finance. Nordea wants to lead the transition to a sustainable future in all segments of our business together with our customers and partners. This is the only way we can create scalable and stable solutions. 

 - Nordea aims to take a leadership position within sustainable finance, enabling our customers to transition to a sustainable future. This conference is an excellent way to facilitate a discussion as a learning forum for our customers, says Mathias. 

The conference also gives our customers ample opportunity to network with global thought leaders, leading business executives and investment professionals. This year is no exception. Speakers include Fredrik Reinfeldt, Chairman of Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative; Marie Ehrling, Chairman of Telia Company and Securitas; and our own Group Chief Executive Officer, Casper von Koskull.
