PKA has been looking after the pensions of Danish healthcare and social workers since 1954. The member-owned fund makes responsible investments that foster sustainable development. PKA’s ESG practices are continuously monitored to ensure promises and performance align. If a company strays from its standards, there are consequences. PKA, in collaboration with other investors through Climate Action 100+, convinced Shell to make emissions concessions — and blocked another oil giant, Exxon Mobil, when it failed to. PKA’s $52bn portfolio includes geographically diversified investments in renewable energies, sustainable properties, social impact investments and growth creation. PKA has 330.000 members, and they are encouraged to exercise voting rights and pursue dialogues with investee companies. The BV judging panel salutes a company with conviction, and declares PKA winner of the 2020 award for Best ESG Pension Fund (Denmark).
