Launched in 2009, the Nordic Engagement Cooperation (NEC) consists of four Nordic institutional investors: Folksam from Sweden, Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company from Finland, KLP from Norway and PFA Asset Management from Denmark. To complement our own engagement, we have made the strategic decision to coordinate some of our engagement activities with companies on environmental, social and governance issues. The NEC structure includes quarterly meetings, a clear delegation of responsibilities and a secretariat that is responsible for the operational work.

The NEC annual engagement report for 2019 is soon to be found on our webpage.
