SSPF has the mission is to invest its assets such that they, together with the return on them, are sufficient to pay all pensions due to members (with the intent to do so in real terms). SSPF believes this mission is supported by focusing its investment policy on long-term value creation, where SSPF acts as a responsbile investor; an active owner of assets that takes into account both financial and ESG considerations (incl. climate change) in its investment decisions. In particular, SSPF puts emphasis on the role of good governance as a prerequisite for good environmental and social performance. ESG is incorporated in investment decision making through a screening and integration approach. Futhermore, SSPF has implemented a voting & engagement policy as integral part of its RI policy. SSPF is invested globally and its portfolio is well diversified. The resulting number of holdings and typical ownership positions are such that, for the execution of its voting & engagement policy (incl. reporting) , SSPF utilises services from an external provider.
