RELATED TOPICS​

Danske Bank has become the first Nordic bank to join the Climate Bonds Partnership Program.

The bank says it shares Climate Bonds’ philosophy that financial services institutions play a vital role in supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy.
 
Jens Petter Olsen, head of capital markets, Danske Bank, says: “The Climate Bond Initiative is a driving force for universal standards, which helps promote the cause for investors, issuers and underwriters. We are very pleased to join the Climate Bond Initiative Partnership Program as the first Nordic bank, and we are looking forward to promoting the Capital Markets sustainability cause and in particular the low carbon issue.”
 
Climate Bonds CEO Sean Kidney (pictured) says: “As a major northern Europe financial institution, Danske Bank has taken an active role towards the transition to a low carbon economy and green finance, committing to sustainable business practices and climate-related investments. Partnering gives us the opportunity to work cooperatively with the Danske Bank, on green bond awareness, labelling and standards, to expand the growing green bond market in northern Europe, as they intensify their efforts towards a zero emissions future.”
