Some 86.3 percent of Danish pension savers rate it as “important”, “very important”, or “absolutely crucial”, that their pension funds are invested responsibly, according to a study by AMWatch in collaboration with Wilke. The high level of interest in responsibility comes as a positive surprise for Peter Lindegaard, Head of Listed Investments at the Danish Labor Market Industriens Pension.

The figures indicate responsible investment is now attracting more attention than it was in the past.
