Recent emissions of greenhouse gases are the highest ever, driven by for example economic and population growth, by energy use and lifestyle. As the largest bank in the Nordics, Nordea has a clear responsibility and a big opportunity to make a difference – as the bank can facilitate capital allocation that can help the transition to a low-carbon economy. To formalize its view and actions related to climate change Nordea has developed a position statement on climate change.
