Sustainable Finance and the Role of Regulation- Interview with Theodor Christensen, Head of Sustainability at the Danish FSA

Sustainable Finance is one of the biggest trends to hit investors in years, as the most conscientious ones, seek opportunities to do good while doing well. However, most of us have a superficial understanding of the meaning of sustainability and its implications; a vacuum of clarity that has led to countless examples of clever marketing, greenwashing, misleading advertising and outright deceit.

In this eye opening interview with Theodor Christensen, Head of Sustainability for the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority, we had the opportunity to ask all the questions you’ve always wanted to know but never knew who to ask. Find out what regulators mean when they talk about sustainability and net zero, why they think it is important and what role they play in incorporating ideas into the regulatory system that oversees the flow of capital behind the things that we buy.
