As the manager of pension funds for 540,000 Danish employees it is part of our remit to use that position to not only create financial return for our trustees, but also to work for a society where everyone can thrive and prosper. Therefore, we aspire to become a Future-Fit Business.
As a global investor with a broad economic and social responsibility, it is imperative that our management strategy accounts for the seismic shifts our economy is facing. We therefore prioritise that our financial assets safeguard the pursuit of future-fitness and that business is conducted ethically. We will strive to eliminate the negative impact arising from these assets.
In addition, it is important for LD Pensions to support companies who progress on the journey towards reducing their negative impact by providing long-term capital and ownership as well as recommend investee companies to start integrating sustainability into their core business strategy with the use of the Future-Fit Business Benchmark.
In 2018 LD Pensions became the first pension fund to publicly adopt Future-Fit’s work, and has played a key role in co-developing and stress-testing the Future-Fit Business Benchmark.
