Investing sustainably is essential in order to achieve the best possible risk-adjusted returns for our clients. Our sustainability strategy is built upon three main pillars:

  1. We exclude a range of non-sustainable products, businesses and activities.
  2. Sustainability is an integrated part of the investment process. We reward companies that provide sustainable solutions.
  3. Through direct dialogue with companies and voting at general meetings, we can positively influence companies behaviour over the long term.
