Nordea joining RE100

15-12-07 12:00 | Environment

RE100 is a collaborative initiative of influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity. With industry and the commercial sector using over half of the world’s electricity, increasing the business demand for renewable energy will help drive decarbonization of the entire power sector.

"As the largest financial services company in Northern Europe, Nordea wants to play an important role in building the future of the societies where we operate. This means contributing to sustainable economic progress through the products and services we provide, but it also means ensuring that we minimize the environmental impact of our operations. We work hard to reduce the energy consumption in our offices and our Nordic operations have run on 100% renewable power since 2010. We are proud to now join RE100 and commit to powering the rest of our operations on renewable electricity going forward", says Gunn Wærsted, member of Group Executive Management & Chairman of Nordea’s CSR Committee.

RE100 is part of the We Mean Business coalition, which Nordea recently joined.
