Sustainability report

We have now published our first annual Sustainability Report for 2019; a year which will probably be recorded as the year in which sustainability and environmental concerns went mainstream.

Environmental, Social and Governance Policy

Our sustainability policy combines the strengths of both SKAGEN and Storebrand within sustainable investing and active ownership.

The team

Silje Simonsen Viste and Sondre Myge Haugland work with sustainable investing and oversee our sustainability policy. They work closely with the portfolio managers to screen each potential portfolio company against our guidelines, both before an investment is made and after a company has entered the portfolio.

"We want to be good investors and all our investments should be sustainable. We combine this with our main objective of creating good returns for our unit holders," says Sondre.

What sustainable investing means to us

When selecting companies, we assess environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues before investing.
