Long Term Aiming for positive long-term value

We aim, in everything we do, for positive long term financial and non-financial value for our clients and other stakeholders, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. To keep the focus, we have – together with internal and external stakeholders – priortised five SDG topics where we expect to make the largest difference:

Goal 7: Affordable and clean energy.

We reduce our carbon footprint and encourage our clients to take climate-friendly measures, such as reducing energy consumption and switching to clean energy. We invest in companies and enter into an active dialogue with them to pursue the goal of reducing their CO2 emissions.

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth.

In various roles – as an investor, lender, and adviser – we promote sustainable economic growth.

Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production.

As a long-term investor, we encourage the companies we invest in to produce sustainably, improve the level of sustainability of their processes, and streamline their sustainability reports.

Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions.

In our different roles, we give serious consideration to international treaties, conventions, and agreements, and engage in dialogue with companies where we promote good governance and anticorruption measures.

Goal 17: Partnerships to achieve the goals.

Achieving all of the SDGs requires global cooperation. That is why we participate in sustainable organizations and initiatives such as PRI, CDP, IIGCC, and SDG initiatives.

These five SDG themes should be seen as a minimum, as in practice we will contribute to more development goals through the Global Impact Pool.
