GHG scopes included:
For equities: top-down targets include Scope 1+2. Bottom-up targets for a number of equity funds also include total estimated scope 3 for energy and mining sectors. Further phase-in of scope 3 will take place when estimation technology is further developed by data providers. For Danish asset backed bonds: housing real estate exposure is estimated as scope 1+2 from total direct energy use. For commercial/industry property exposure the coverage also include estimates of scope 1+2 from the business activity taking place in the property.
Net Zero Investment Framework
We use the IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C P2
Proportion of AUM committed:
The focus initially has been on listed equity and Danish asset backed bonds which is a significant part of total AUM. The asset backed bonds are primarily used to finance private and commercial real estate, and we believe that we are in a unique position to influence this EUR 290 bn market as an investor. Government bonds were not included initially due to unclarity around methodology. We will work from a bottom-up perspective on the USD 2.5 bn exposure to corporate bonds and expect to add these assets before 2025. The remaining 2.5% of assets is invested in asset types and cash which are not covered by the chosen net zero framework.
Policy on coal and other fossil fuel investments:
No, we do not currently adopt a science-based policy on coal and other fossil fuel investment. We are working on a company-wide climate policy which will include a policy section on coal and other fossil fuels.
