The Nordic Council of Ministers´ Working Group on Sustainable Consumption and Production, in collaboration with the Working Group on Environment and Economy, held a Nordic Conference on Green Investments and Nordic Pension Funds in Oslo, 27 May 2015. The aim of the Conference was to discuss how to deepen and strengthen green, sustainable and socially responsible investments by Nordic Pension Funds and institutional investors. The main outcome was the following: Investing in green & sustainable companies is profitable. Divesting out of fossil fuels is one of the strategies, and this is actually about to happen with the Nordic countries as frontrunners. The financial market is already prepared and expecting tough policy measures from politicians. We hope this report will contribute to strengthen the Nordic countries aim for a climate ambitious agreement in Paris in December 2015.
