Actively supporting a Nordic innovation cluster

WE BELIEVE IN DIALOGUE, INFLUENCE AND TECHNICAL INNOVATION

Good Dialogue

We believe that an honest and forthright dialog between companies and owners increases the prospects for acting responsibly, strengthening existing processes of continuous improvement in sustainability.

Influence

By exclusion we would evade our responsibility. By influence we can help move companies in the right direction and increase the chances of sustainable value creation.

Technical Innovation

Technology + Innovation = Sustainability. Technological advances are in our view the only way to reach a CO2 free society. Green technologies that are more profitable than old technologies show the right way forward.

OUR POLICY FOR RESPONSIBLE INVESTING

The overall philosophy for responsible investment of the fund is that companies listed on Nordic stock markets, with long term owners who engage in dialog with them have great potential to act responsibly. The fund aims to contribute to dialog between companies and owners in order to establish or strengthen an existing process of continuous improvement in the area of sustainability.
