Our engagement policy is a part of our RI process according to which the meetings with the management is the most important channel for engaging and influencing. Issues discussed with the management are mostly company specific and arise from company information and our own ESG analysis. Portfolio managers follow up how companies develop their processes and activities at regular meetings, by actively following the public information and by addressing specific issues by e-mails. We specifically target the companies with low ESG scoring. Attention is given to development of KPI´s and how successful a company is in meeting its targets. In particular we look at company's ability to set more specific targets and to incorporate ESG into their strategy and throughout the entire value chain.
We also conduct engagements on a specific theme and in these cases we engage with all the companies we have invested in, if relevant. In 2015 and 2016 we have focused on environmental issues, e.g. reporting and interpreting carbon footprint information. Late 2016 we also sent an inquiry to all the companies that according to our knowledge do not report their emission, in order to encourage them to report in the future.
