PensionDanmark’s CEO Torben Möger Pedersen is one of 50 business executives portrayed by Bloomberg as global climate leaders representing 50 climate leadership firms that demonstrate transformational climate action in the international business community, and the desire to rise to the challenge of climate change.
The Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals are the foundation for a global effort to address climate change, and the 50 climate leaders emphasise why climate action is better for business and society.
Regarding PensionDanmark, Bloomberg states that “Doing good and doing well – this is the key tenet of the Danish labour market pension fund, PensionDanmark, and is reflected in all their activities. In 2010, the pension fund made their first investments into renewable energy infrastructure. Now, with ownership of over 3,600 gigawatts of yearly green power production capacity, approximately 10% of PensionDanmark’s total assets, are invested in wind farms, solar power and biomass power plants.”
“We are very honored to be part of Bloomberg’s 50 climate leaders. PensionDanmark is investing in the green transformation with good investment returns for our members based on sustainable growth. By doing so, PensionDanmark proves that investments in large-scale, clean energy projects are good business,” says Torben Möger Pedersen, CEO of PensionDanmark.
