Green investments benefit both the climate and the pension

2022 was a particularly difficult year on the financial markets with, among other things, the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis and high inflation. But despite a challenged market, compared to other companies, Pensionskassen Arkitekter & Designere were among the best at limiting the loss for members. This is due, among other things, to investments in so-called alternatives – including green energy.

In April 2022, for example, the pension fund expanded the portfolio with a green investment in the geothermal company, Innargi via NRGI.

With the investment in Innargi, the pension fund is now co-owner of various platforms within solar, wind and geothermal and thus has a solid portfolio of sustainable energy assets.
