Dansif was founded on 24 November 2008 at the initiative of a number of institutional investors and advisors.

Dansif is an impartial forum for players with a substantial interest in ESG. The objective is to spread and exchange experiences among the members of the Society as well as to facilitate a diversified debate on ESG.

Dansif is open for institutional investors (pension funds, unit trusts and others) as well as other organisations with activities in Denmark and a substantial interest in ESG. Members must be independent legal units (enterprises, organisations, institutions).

Each year, Dansif organises 3-4 events aiming at knowledge interchange and debate on relevant subjects within ESG, e.g. ESG and climate, communication of ESG, influencing enterprises to act more ethically through active ownership and similar topics.

Dansif does not have any independent positions on ESG or other subjects. Thus, the Chairman, the Board or others cannot make any attitudinal statements on behalf of the Society and its members.

Dansif’s day-to-day management is handled by the Board of Directors, all of whom are elected by the Society’s members at the annual general assembly. The day-to-day operations are handled by the Danish Finance Society.
