Objectives and strategies

SG 05. RI goals and objectives

05.1. Indicate if and how frequently your organisation sets and reviews objectives for its responsible investment activities.

05.2. Additional information. [Optional]

We continuously aim to improve our responsible investment processes and policies. This is done through improving our responsible investment policy, other guidelines and processes together with training our staff on the subject. Introducing new asset classes, new regulation or client demand drive the need to develop our approach.

Responsible investment processes

Key performance indicator

          Establish an ESG committee.

ESG awareness has increased throughout the organisation. We set in place an ESG committee consisting of seven professionals from different asset classes and functions within the organisation. We have created a more structured way to work on ESG related issues from internal training to client events, the use and evaluation of service providers. 

Key performance indicator

          Activity in both inhouse and collaborative engagements.

Progress achieved

We have participated for example in the ClimateAction 100+ initiative and the CDP non-disclosure campaign. We also continued to actively engage with government institutions such as the Ministry of Finance, Central Bank, Debt Office and so on in Emerging and Frontier countries.

We continued to participate in the CA 100+ initiative, within the CDP initiatives we took part in the non-disclosure campaign.

We also re-signed the investor statement to governments relating to climate change within "The Investor Agenda" initiative.
