Sustainability Ambassadors Forum is established in order to support Nordea’s efforts to contribute to the greater good of the societies where Nordea operates, of customers and through investment, lending and advisory activities. Sustainability Ambassadors Forum is the first forum of its kind among European banks.
Filippa Strandänger at Group Sustainable Finance is working actively with the forum.
- This is an important part of integrating sustainability across the organisation and to engage people. In collaboration together with colleagues working in different business areas with different experiences we create sustainable value for our customers through the Sustainability Ambassadors Forum, she says.
The ambassadors are Nordea employees working in different business areas and geographical areas. The sustainability ambassadors are working in various positions and have various experiences with a passion for sustainability.
Awareness on ESG
Mia Lena Engebretsen is a Corporate Specialist located in Copenhagen and she is one of the sustainability ambassadors in the Sustainability Ambassadors Forum.
- The Forum offers me the opportunity to get insight on, and influence, the sustainability agenda for the Nordea Group, and make it relevant for my Business Area. Both internally and towards our customers, supporting them on both regulations and the business case, that comes with the growing awareness on ESG/SDG’s in all industries, she says.
In addition to the Sustainability Ambassadors Forum Nordea launched a larger network for people at Nordea who are interested in sustainability and sustainable finance issues to meet online.
The forum has regular meetings online and face to face. The next meeting with Sustainability Ambassadors Forum will take place in Stockholm in September.
