Type of screening

Screened by


Since 2018, our own sustainability assessment work has been supported by ISS-Ethix, which monitors the contents of our funds quarterly to detect any violations of the UN's Global Compact principles. This information is used actively in the interaction with companies, and in all serious violations, we will launch a separate follow-up process of our own in order to find out if the investment is still in line with our responsibility principles for long-term ownership. The number of serious violations has remained very low in 2019, and is limited to a few companies world-wide. ISS-Ethix provides the data which is used in pre-investment, monitoring and engagement.
