In this episode of the Green Dream, the video series where ESG Clarity interviews key figureheads in the responsible investment world to get their views on the latest trends, news and movements in this evolving landscape, Natalie Kenway speaks to CEO of Nordea Asset Management Nils Bolmstrand.
He discusses what ESG means to the firm and its history in responsible investing, as well as taking responsibility as an asset manager in educating around what sustainability means and how groups can collaborate with each other.
From his Stockholm office, Bolmstrand also answers questions on integrating ESG principles at Nordea and across the industry, and identifying the winners and losers of the future.
The pair also discuss the impact of Covid-19 and whether this has accelerated or suppressed green policies.
