Working systematically with sustainability risks
We focus on analysing and reducing sustainability risks in order to protect your investments. If the companies do not manage and address sustainability issues, there may be negative consequences for earnings and for your potential return. Because of this, we analyse whether the companies, for example:
- take climate issues into consideration
- live up to human rights obligations
- have good employee conditions
- do not damage biodiversity
- do not contribute to water pollution
- work to combat corruption
This helps us select sustainable and robust investments that can potentially generate attractive returns for you.
Example: Climate-related risks and opportunities
The climate agenda can potentially have a bearing on whether or not an individual company is able to deliver good returns. Consequently, the green transition plays an important role when we select investments. Our thorough analysis of climate factors helps us to select the companies that are best equipped to deal with climate issues and to embrace the green growth opportunities.
In the ‘Climate: Our Investment Approach’ report, you can read examples of our climate approach in the paper industry, the energy and financial sector, copper and the automotive industry.
