Sustainability

The whole family on the sledding hill.

Swedbank Robur’s vision is to be world leader in sustainable value creation. Sustainable value creation refers to our ambition to create a healthy, long-term return for our savers, while also contributing to the positive development of society and the environment. We aim to achieve this by being a key player that supports and influences change and is dedicated to making a difference for people and the environment.

  • As part of our financial analysis, we identify companies' sustainability risks and opportunities for improvement.
  • We exclude some companies for sustainability reasons, but our main principle is to remain as owner and use our ability to influence.
  • We want to influence companies we own to continuously improve within the areas of the environment and climate change, human rights, labour standards and business ethics.
  • We also want to influence companies to have good corporate governance.
  • We have signed the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, PRI.

Sustainability methods

Integrate

We believe in investing in companies that manage their sustainability risks and that create business opportunities based on global trends. Our fund managers and sustainability analysts work together to assess companies' sustainability work.

Influence

We work to ensure that companies minimise their risks and, if possible, develop ther business with sustainability in mind. Through dialogue and corporate governance, we influence companies all over the world - ourselves and in collaboration with others.

Exclude

We refrain from investing in companies that produce or distribute cluster bombs, landmines, chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. We also exclude companies for which the production of coal accounts for more than 5 percent of revenue and producers of pornographic material.
