Engaging with a focus
We believe that improved management of sustainability risks and opportunities is vital to creating returns with responsibility and that engagement can result in competitive advantage, increasing the likelihood of companies being successful in the long run – benefitting companies, clients and society at large.
In line with our net zero commitment, in 2021 we set a target to ensure that by 2025, 80% of the Top 200 largest contributors to our financed emissions will be assessed as Paris-aligned, or else be subject to engagement to become so. This target will increase to 100% by 2030.
In 2022, we’ve initiated a concerted engagement campaign to communicate our expectations of Paris alignment amongst Top 200 emitters. Read more about that work in our Nordea Responsible Investment Annual report.
