Case Study / 14 Apr 2015

Nordea Investment Management

Nordea Investment Management commissioned Trucost to analyse the carbon footprint of its funds, largely in response to investor demands for greater disclosure.

Nordea is the largest financial services group in the Nordic and Baltic region, holding leading positions in corporate and institutional banking as well as in retail and private banking. It is also the leading provider of life and pensions products in the Nordic countries.

The company commissioned Trucost to analyse the carbon footprint of its funds, largely in response to investor demands for greater disclosure in fossil fuel investments. The analysis covered the impacts of some of Nordea’s large mainstream equity funds, as well as ESG focused funds. Performance data for Nordea’s Emerging Stars fund shows that the portfolio is 6 per cent less carbon intensive than its MSCI benchmark – reflecting the higher weighting given to information technology and healthcare compared to the weighting given to energy and materials.
