Storebrand Asset Management is a leading player in the Nordic market and a pioneer within the field of sustainable investments. We have been at the forefront of sustainable investing since the mid-1990s and are one of the founding signatories of the PRI.
We fundamentally regard sustainability as a significant driver of corporate value i.e., companies that manage current and future environmental and social opportunities and risks will emerge as leaders and are more likely to create a competitive advantage and long-term stakeholder value.
Sustainability is integral to Storebrand Asset Management, this means we evaluate economic, social and environmental aspects before we make any decisions. Our long-term vision for the year 2050 is a world where all people live well, and within the earth’s natural limits. Our standard for sustainable investments is based on the assumption that the companies which contribute to solving society’s problems in a sustainable way will also be the most profitable in the long run. Storebrand was the first Norwegian company to establish a sustainable investment department in 1995, and we have one of the most experienced environmental, social and governance (ESG) teams in the Nordic region. Since 2010, ESG analysis has been steadily integrated into the daily risk management and company/asset selection processes of Storebrand Asset Management’s fund managers.
Storebrand Asset Management’s sustainable investment strategy includes three distinct dimensions that are continuously evaluated and developed to remain in the forefront of sustainable investing. Our three dimensions include risk reduction through exclusions, selection of top performers through a sustainability score and lastly exertion of influence through active ownership.
