Our primary tool for choosing companies is our sustainability rating. The purpose of the rating is to integrate ESG aspects (environmental and social issues as well as corporate governance) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals into all investments, factors that we consider create good preconditions for long-term return. Our analysis of approximately 4,500 companies together with the total sustainability rating is integrated systematically into all investment processes.
In a number of funds, more investments are made in ‘solution companies’, which we define as companies whose products and/or services contribute to achieving the global goals for sustainable development. For us, it is important to invest broadly in different technologies (for example, green transport, renewable energy, water, recycling, etc.) to diversify our risk and to make the most of opportunities.
