We strive to invest in companies with sustainable business models that run their operations in a responsible manner. Skandia has developed its own tool for guiding the portfolio managers in integrating ESG factors, by combining analysis from external service providoers with Skandia's own analysis and view. The tool is available to all portfolio managers.
All listed equities are screened regurlarly. Skandia expects that the companies we invest in follow UN Global Compact. If companies are found to be violating international norms, engagment is initiatied. Ultimately, if a company is not found to show a credible action plan, Skandia will divest and/or exclude the company from the investment universe. In addition, we exclude companies involved in controversial weapons, tobacco production, thermal coal extraction, and cannabis.
