Responsible Investments

Good risk-adjusted returns, focus on corporate responsibility and climate considerations go hand in hand. And here at PFA, we do not only want to invest responsibly - we also want to use our influence and move the world in a more positive direction.

Returns and responsibility go hand in hand

At PFA, we want to contribute to a good and sustainable societal development by investing responsibly while at the same time generating good returns. Among other things, we do this by backing the Paris Agreement, actively contributing to meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, entering into important partnerships and investing billions of Danish kroner in the green transition.

At the same time, as active owners, we are doing our part to influence companies to pursue a positive path that benefits both people and the environment. We do this because we believe that responsible business models are the key factor to good long-term returns and because we believe that together with our many customers we can be part of making a difference in the way that we invest.

We have committed ourselves to making our total investments carbon-neutral by no later than 2050. As a sub-target, towards 2025 we will reduce the CO2 emissions of our investments by 29 per cent. 

We also give our customers the choice of investing all or part of their pension savings in PFA Climate Plus, where we are even more ambitious in terms of reducing CO2 emissions. The ambition is for the entire product to be carbon-neutral in 2025. Learn more here

 

  

As Denmark’s largest commercial pension company, we are a very large community. Together, we can make a difference and create the frameworks for a good life and a better world, both now and in the future. In this video, you can see specifically how PFA is working with responsibility and what it means for our many customers - private customers as well as corporate and organisational customers.
