When investing with Danske Invest, it is our obligation to serve your interests by creating both competitive and sustainable returns. To do so we integrate environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) matters in all our investment practices similar to the way we look at financials or market momentum.
How we work
Danske Invest’s work with responsible investments is guided by Danske Bank’s responsible investment policy and is managed by Danske Bank’s Sustainability and Impact Investment team.
Our approach stands on a solid foundation with several building blocks to help us invest responsibly:
• We consider sustainability and impact when investing
• We enter into dialogue with companies and stakeholders
• We act as active owners and use our voice through voting
• We refrain from certain investments
• We are open through disclosure and reporting
• We seek to influence through collaboration
