We work to ensure that companies minimise their risks and, if possible, develop their business with sustainability in mind. We actively engage with holdings to address environmental, social and governance challenges in our engagement as owner.
As owner our primary focus is engagement dialogues with boards and management teams of the businesses we invest in. We also take part in nomination committees and we exercise voting at General Meetings. Additionally, we use our influence in the investment community to drive change together with peers and third parties. We also cooperate with our suppliers in developing research methodology that will support sustainable investing.
As investor we engage with a broad spectrum of stakeholders, such as our customers, media and NGOs. Transparent communication, education, shared learning and review of our products and business practices are the main drivers. We also influence policy makers and regulatory bodies to improve our sector and the society in our engagement as investor.
