We continuously work to stop and counteract climate change in our operations, both direct and indirect

Reducing climate impact

The planet and its environment are under pressure from pollution, acidification, depletion of natural resources and eutrophication. This affects land use, the supply of fresh water and many other of the planet’s resources. In addition, climate change is already affecting us in the form of extreme weather events. Over time this will have consequences for both the regional and the global economy.

Direct consequences 

Through the reduction in our paper usage and choosing remote meetings instead of unnecessary travelling we directly reduce our impact on the climate. This has all been made possible with digital innovations and through new insights. We measure our direct environmental impact in all six home markets, which represent 97 percent of our employees. We are continuously working to minimise the carbon dioxide emissions generated in our operations. Our goal is to continually reduce such emissions and our overall environmental impact, all in line with the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Indirect impact 

Most of our environmental impact comes from business we finance and invest in. It is therefore important to influence and demand ways to minimize the impact from these business.
