The service provider will detect any breach of international norms and evaluate the breach, engage if necessary and report on the outcome of the engagement.
In the policy, we say:
6.2.1 Active owner that exerts an influence
The Church of Sweden shall strive to be a responsible owner in a broader sense. This means that we are active owners and make use of our opportunities to influence increased sustainability. We can do this independently or in conjunction with other actors. This influence can, above and beyond ongoing asset management be expressed by:
Making our position clear and influencing public opinion.
Engaging with corporations, representatives from the financial sector and other actors in the market.
Developing new investment products in conjunction with asset managers.
Supporting and being engaged in different initiatives in Sweden and internationally.
and in the guidelines that give more granularity to the policy, we say in section 2.1:
Even companies that have done much can exhibit serious shortcomings in parts of its operations and consequently risks being in breach of the policy. The asset manager shall engage the company in question (or several companies in the same sector) in a dialogue for the purpose of improving the company's working methods. Again, the company's response, action plan and how serious the shortcomings are all determine whether or not it is possible to invest in the company.
