Building partnerships

Global reach through collaborations

We want to take an active role in aligning finance and markets to sustainability. We do this in part through our stewardship activities. This we believe will benefit companies and investors and contribute to a sustainable economy with prosperity and long-term growth and where pressing environmental and social issues are addressed.

As part of our sustainability finance approach, we apply internationally recognized principles of responsible investment and stewardship.

In 2007, we signed UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment. By endorsing these principles we commit to integrating environmental, social and governance factors into our investment decision-making processes as well as our stewardship policies and practices.

We engage with companies and other stakeholders including policymakers on different themes individually or through collaborative initiatives with global reach and supported by a large number of investors.
