Financial performance of investments

Progress achieved

During 2019 we developed and launched our proprietary ESG analysis tool, CF THOR, to identify and assess ESG-related risks and opportunities in existing and potential portfolio companies. Will ensure that ESG factors are taken into consideration in a more structured manner which, over time, may impact portfolio construction and thus performance. The target for 2020 is that all portfolio holdings have been analyzed using the tool by 2020-06-30.

ESG characteristics of investments

Key performance indicator

          Fundamental ESG analysis using internal tool CF THOR. Ensures that ESG factors are taken into consideration in a more structured manner.
        

Progress achieved

Although Carnegie Fonder does not apply a best-in-class strategy in any of our funds, we seek to invest in companies that we believe are stable, well-managed and long term in all matters, including ESG. During 2019 we developed and launched our own, proprietary ESG tool, CF THOR to structure our analysis and help us to confirm that a company employs sustainable business practices and has a business model that remains sustainable in the long term. The tools also helps us identify companies/situations where the ESG risks and opportunities appear to be “misunderstood” by the market in general, but where our analysis provides us with sufficient comfort to invest, and identifies particular areas where we can engage with the company to encourage ESG-related improvements which we believe can be value creating.

Other activities

Key performance indicator

          Case studies included in our sustainability report, annual report and client presentations.
        

Progress achieved
