Responsible investment

Danske Bank Group strives to conduct business on the basis of customers’ needs in a profitable and sustainable manner.

We believe that responsible behaviour is a precondition for long-term value creation in a company. The Responsibility Policy thus does not conflict with the Bank’s objective of generating the best possible returns for its customers.

Danske Bank Group’s procedures for responsible investing are intended to ensure that the funds we invest on behalf of our customers are not placed in companies that violate internationally recognised standards. The Group screens its investment portfolios according to a number of internationally recognised standards and guidelines for human rights, arms, working conditions, the environment and anti-corruption.
