01.4. 組織の投資原則および全体の投資戦略、受託者義務(または同等のもの)の解釈、ならびに、ESGファクターおよび実体経済の影響をどのように考慮に入れているかについて説明してください。

Our investment objective is to secure sustainable long-term returns. Therefore, we have chosen to incorporate ESG criteria during the screening and due diligence process for investments. In making investment decisions, we are primarily responsible to the companies and their employees insured by us whose interests can be characterized as those of the Swiss public. Our incorporation of ESG criteria must be in the interest of the Swiss public. Aligning an investment decision with ESG criteria involves some subjective judgement and it was a challenge to find a process to incorporate ESG criteria into investment decisions that maximizes the likelihood of representing the interests of the Swiss public by relying on generally accepted norms as stated above.

Our investment strategy targets companies and investment managers with a business model, respectively an investment approach, that is sustainable in the long term and that incorporate ESG issues into their decision processes.

01.5. 責任投資アプローチをカバーする組織の投資ポリシーの重要な構成要素、バリエーション、例外事項を簡潔に説明してください。[任意]

As one of the larger investors in Switzerland, our domestic investment decisions have more impact than decisions abroad. Therefore, we have a stronger focus on responsible investing in our home market.

For many activities in relation to responsible investment, we collaborate with SVVK-ASIR (e.g., for engagement and exclusion list). SVVK-ASIR was founded in December 2015 and its exclusion and engagement processes were subsequently defined. Formal engagements began in 2017. In March 2017, an exclusion list was officially established, and Suva implemented it in June 2017, substituting it for the previous internally determined exclusion list. Suva is a founding member of SVVK.

Our strong domestic position gives us the possibility to frequently meet the management of Swiss companies. In these meetings, our portfolio managers discuss ESG measures with management and encourage the adoption of ESG measures that fit well to their business models on a long-term basis.

Our large portfolio of investments in Swiss property follows the same process. Although Swiss building law already sets very high ecological and social standards for properties, we go one step further by additionally rating our buildings on ecological criteria and undertaking investments in our buildings to further improve their ecological performance.

Suva has a zero-carbon emission target for 2050 with respect to its real estate holdings and has pledged to reduce energy intensity per sqm by 35% by 2023 from 2016.
