Sustainable pension investments… boring?

I don’t think so. In fact, they are highly relevant for all of us.

Do you have enough money saved for when you retire? We all want a good return on our pension savings, but how can we also support the global sustainability agenda – and what role do governments, companies, unions, and employees play in achieving this goal?

Today ISS A/S hosted a Nordic IEBA (International Employee Benefits Association) event to discuss this very topic and the many dilemmas facing pension providers and employers. A key theme was risk and what constitutes a “good return” – while choosing a sustainable investment profile is not always easy for employees, it is a crucial step towards building a better future for everyone.

At ISS, we believe that taking social
responsibility seriously and incorporating it into our pension plans and benefits is not just the right thing to do – it’s essential for any responsible business. By doing so, we can help build a sustainable future while also ensuring our people are taken care of.

The topic of sustainable pensions is complex and
requires us to challenge our thinking around risk and reward. To accelerate the necessary changes, we must challenge one another and ask ourselves: are we willing to invest in sustainable funds, even if it comes with higher costs?
Take a moment to reflect and let me know what you think.

A big thank you to Christian Storm Schubart , Mads Steinmüller and Sandra Metoyer, CFA for giving expert insights into this complex topic, to Charlotte Enggaard and Mette Dalsgaard being part of our panel discussions and to Christoffer Halken for facilitating the discussions and not the least to all the attendees for being a great and active audience. Let’s all continue the needed conversations on sustainable investments, so we together can accelerate the changes
