The exclusion list that Suva adopts is the one established by the SVVK-ASIR.
From SVVK-ASIR website (© svvk-asir.ch): "By using methods of screening and monitoring of the investment universe of its members, SVVK-ASIR identifies problematic companies based on ESG criteria – the focus being on foreign and international companies. Companies classified as problematic serve as the subject matter to start a purposeful engagement process. Specialized external investment providers with the relevant network and expertise are appointed to engage with the companies."
According to SVVK-ASIR, if direct dialogue has taken place with a company identified as problematic, and no improvement has occurred, SVVK-ASIR reserves the right to include the company on an exclusion list.
Producers of certain types of weapons banned by Swiss law and international conventions on banned weapons signed by Switzerland (e.g., "Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons", "Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction", etc.) are strictly excluded.
Suva's screening approach further consists of abiding by the legal sanctions and embargos decided upon by the Swiss government against countries, institutions and companies.
