Commitments that support our work
Collaborative initiatives and voluntary commitments are crucial to solving sustainability issues, as the financial sector must come together to drive change on a global and local scale. Nordea aims to work together with all societal actors, including legislators, governments, companies, NGOs and other financial institutions. The rapidly developing area of sustainability comes with challenges related to evaluation, comparability and credibility. We need to keep working towards harmonisation in order to effectively drive change.
As one of the leading banks in the Nordics, Nordea is committed to doing its part. We were one of the first Nordic banks to sign the Principals for Responsible Investments (PRI) in January 2007. Since then, we have continued to drive the sustainability agenda in the Nordics, and in an international context. Nordea is a proud co-founder of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB), the Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance and the Net-Zero Asset Managers Initiative. Nordea is also the Nordic representative in the UNEP FI Banking Board and our CEO is a member of the high-level forum UNEP FI Leadership Council.
