A common sense approach

A common sense approach

We have incorporated ESG into our investment process since 2002. We take a common-sense approach to ESG while at the same time acknowledging the complexity of ESG where developments take place at a whirlwind pace. We continue to learn and fortify the integration of sustainability into our investment process. ​

Environmental, Social and Governance Policy

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

What sustainable investing means to us

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

 

Principles for Responsible Investment

In 2012, SKAGEN signed up to the UN supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

 

In addition to our work as a fund manager, we want to make a positive contribution as an employer, purchaser and social actor.

We aim to be a sustainable fund company that promotes diversity, gender equality and reduces the climate footprint.
