Case Study / 30 Nov 2014

KPA Pension

Trucost helped KPA Pension to reduce long-term risk of its fossil fuel holdings.

KPA Pension commissioned Trucost to analyze the climate impacts of its entire stock portfolio, with the aim of reducing the financial risk presented by fossil fuel holdings. As a result KPA Pension shares contain substantially less carbon dioxide than the benchmark – helping KPA to reduce long-term risk of reduced returns.

Trucost analysis showed KPA Pension shares in Nordic companies contain 46 percent less carbon dioxide than the shares of MSCI’s Nordic indexes. And that the international equity of companies in their portfolio contains 29 percent less carbon dioxide than MSCI’s global indexes.
