ESG in Europe

The Nordic countries are often perceived as forerunners of sustainability. Nordic institutional investors have long recognized environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors as key drivers of value, while issuers in the same region consistently rank high in global sustainability ratings. 

Research shows that companies that provide ESG-related data and participate in key sustainability indexes are increasingly attractive investment targets. It also shows that ESG-themed investments not only outperform, but also withstand market volatility and downturns.

Nasdaq plays a key role in supporting the transition towards more sustainable capital markets. Our Nordic markets have pioneered our ESG efforts through a number of product and service launches in recent years, and we remain fully committed to exploring new ESG opportunities across Europe and globally for years to come.
