Since the inception of the investment policy, we have screened all externally managed funds and we deliver an exclusion list to all managers, which they need to adhere to. As an extra precautionairy measure the list is also uploaded to our portfoliomanagement system, which will block any faulty attempts to buy a company on the list.
We expect the managers to adhere to the policy, which first of all means that the managers should implement our exclusion list. We encourage RI and PRI-membership. However, we see it is our responsibility to ensure compliance with the policy. Therefore we screen all portfolios, assess and engage with companies directly. We expect managers to integrate ESG, but to make sure this is implemented we monitor this ourselves and discuss findings with the managers.
