SG 01. RI policy and coverage


01.1. 責任投資アプローチをカバーする投資ポリシーを策定しているかどうかを明示してください。

01.2. ポリシーの構成要素/種類と対象範囲を示してください。


01.3. 投資ポリシーが以下のどの項目をカバーしているか明示して下さい:

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 legal foundation stipulates that ethical and environmental aspects must be considered when making our investment decisions - both in regards to investments in funds and in start-up companies and in regards to loans. Our investment policies and strategies reflect this. As part of our due diligence processes, we require to identify possible ESG issues and we instruct potential investee funds/companies to give us their own account of their ESG profile both with regard to negatives and positives.

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]

In Vaekstfonden we have a responsibility both as a company and as an investor. Our approach is based on internationally agreed principles for sustainable development. Besides PRI, we recognize and follow UN Guiding Principles, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and are a participant in the UN Global Compact.

As a responsible investor and loan provider, our approach to overall ESG-factors is focused on dialogue, information, and cooperation.

Prior to the decision on providing co-finance, we include questions in our due diligence processes related to human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. We require that the funds and companies we co-finance commit to handling CSR based on UN Guiding Principles and UN Global Compact. In companies where we are active owners, we require that CSR is discussed annually at senior management level and that issues with a negative impact are discussed immediately if they occur. If a negative impact issue occurs, we will investigate the circumstances thoroughly and use our experience and influence to remediate the situation. Our approach is based on constructive dialogue and on sharing our knowledge and experience about handling ESG-issues.

SG 01 CC. Climate risk

01.6 CC. 投資期間において特定され、組織の投資戦略・商品に組み込まれている気候関連のリスクおよび機会について記述してください。

組織が気候関連の移行リスク・物理的リスクおよび機会を特定するためのプロセスをまだ踏んでいない理由を説明してください。(500 語以内で自由に記載)

We haven’t gone through a process identifying transition and physical climate-related risks and opportunities yet. Right now we are looking into how to identify and factor climate-related risks and how to finance funds and companies, who are working with solutions to mitigate climate-related issues. During 2020 we will launch new mandates with finance to companies working with green and sustainable solutions.

We are looking at how to support the TCFD, but we haven't made any public statements about it because we at the moment are investigating how to address the TCFD correctly.

At the moment we are in progress with a wider strategy on how to manage risks and opportunities related to climate.
