Responsible investment 2017
13 February 2018
Our mission is to safeguard and build financial wealth for future generations. We manage the fund responsibly in order to support the investment objective of the highest possible return with a moderate level of risk. We believe that long-term return is dependent on sustainable development and well-functioning markets.
We aim to promote long-term value creation in the companies in which we invest. Voting is one of the most important tools we have for exercising our ownership rights. In our dialogue with companies, we raise governance and sustainability issues that we consider relevant. We work with companies to increase the information available to investors, and promote good business practices.
We aim to identify long-term investment opportunities and reduce our exposure to unacceptable risk. We believe there are opportunities for investing in companies and technologies that enable more environmentally friendly economic activity. At the same time, there are companies where we choose not to be an owner, based on long-term sustainability or ethical assessments.
