01.2. 組織が実施しているESG組み入れアプローチ、および、特定のESG組み入れ戦略を選択している場合はその理由を説明してください。

We consider responsible investing as part of our fiduciary duty. We find responsibility as a competition factor for companies. Responsibility assessment can provide information on the risks and opportunities that could potentially affect the company’s financial performance in the future, for example, through changes in sales or expenses. These impacts can be triggered by, among other things, changes in legislation or consumption habits that result from a phenomenon or activity associated with responsibility. 

ESG integration refers to the consideration of ESG matters (environment, society and governance) in investment analysis and decision-making. Following the identification of substantial ESG issues, the purpose of ESG integration is to assess a company's ability to take into consideration the risks and opportunities associated with these and to assess whether the price of company's securities reflect these factors. Portfolio managers are supported in ESG integration by high-quality ESG assessments and ratings produced by third parties. We also collect ESG information ourselves, for example, discussing relevant responsibility issues in meetings with company management. Our portfolio managers meet company representatives on a daily basis. There are hundreds of meetings like these every year. In addition to assessments carried out by third parties, our country analysis utilises country-specific ESG factors included in our own country-risk model.

We are interested in the performance of our investments in terms of initiatives and principles concerning general international business practices and responsibility-related norms. We observe, for example, the UN Global Compact and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. The UN Global Compact contains principles related to human rights, labour and corruption. The human rights principles include the eradication of forced and child labour. We have access to comprehensive analysis and ratings by third parties. These help us monitor the compliance of the companies we have invested in with international codes of practice. When considering an investment, our portfolio manager checks the company’s compliance with international norms. If there are serious problems with compliance, we can start to engage, monitor the company or exclude it from our investment options. However, our priority is to improve the company's responsibility performance and to eliminate risks resulting from questionable activities. Screens that rely on external data and analysis, are run regularly in addition to the checks that are done before making a new investments.

LEI 04. Types of screening applied

04.1. 組織内でアクティブ運用している上場株式に適用するスクリーニングの種類を記載し、説明してください。




Product and activity based exclusion. We exclude companies in certain clearly defined business segments from our direct investments. We do not invest in manufacturers of weapons prohibited by international treaties, including nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, cluster munitions and anti-personnel mines. We do not invest in producers of tobacco or producers of cannabis intended for recreational use either. We use external experts for identifying the companies that fall within the above categories. Based on our own analysis, we have excluded mining and power companies whose business is strongly coal-based. We exclude mining companies if coal used for energy production accounts for more than 20 % of their turnover. In the case of electricity companies, we have first calculated the coal-intensity of their electricity production and then more carefully examined the source of the emissions of the most coal-intensive companies.

When it comes to companies' ESG related practice and performance, exclusion can be made if there are serious problems in corporate practice.



We have five funds where there are pre-set requirements on ESG rating. In these cases companies' ratings have to be above a certain level. ESG ratings consist of E, S and G.



We use information provided by MSCI ESG Research to conduct the screening.

Screening criterion and principles are defined in our ESG policy. If the policy is updated, we will make the new information publicly available.
