Background

In 2020, the Climate Investment Coalition engaged with Nordic, European and UK governments and institutional investors to increase green investments to achieve the net-zero transition. A process to mobilise commitments in the Nordics was launched in October 2020 together with Nordic pension fund CEOs at a Prime Minister’s meeting (N8) where Nordic leaders also announced their intent to encourage Nordic institutional investors to scale-up green finance and investments towards 2030. The Climate Investment Coalition was established on the back of Danish pension funds’ 2019 conditional commitment of USD 50 billion towards clean energy and climate-related investments by 2030, announced at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit, by the Government of Denmark; Insurance and Pension Denmark; the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and World Climate Foundation.

Dan Jørgensen, Minister of Climate, Energy and Utilities in Denmark 

"The political response to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic must reap the synergies between job creation and climate action. Huge amounts of money will be mobilised to boost our economies, and we must seize that as an opportunity to tip the scales from black to green. Institutional investors will play a key role in making the recovery a green one"

"The Danish insurance and pension industry support the Paris Agreement to keep the global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celcius, preferably 1.5 degrees. Institutional investors can play an important role in the green transition by financing green investments, given suitable framework conditions. Through the activities of the Climate Investment Coalition, the Danish pension industry will share its experiences in good green investment practices and framework conditions to promote the green transition internationally"
