Sustainable funds

When selecting companies, we evaluate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors before making any investment decisions.

Sustainable Investing

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

Principles for Responsible Investment

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

Active ownership promotes sustainable developments

SKAGEN is an active owner and we engage regularly with the companies we invest in.

Sustainability is his job

“Sustainability used to be considered something defensive; now it is a way of creating excess return,” says SKAGEN’s sustainability specialist Sondre Myge Haugland.

Launch of a clear deforestation policy

SKAGEN and Storebrand are collaborating on an ambitious policy which aims to limit the depletion of the world’s forests.

Three days of sustainable investments

SKAGEN attended the leading conference for sustainable investments, PRI in Person in Paris.

Common group policy for sustainable investments

The Storebrand Group – including SKAGEN, Delphi and SPP – is a significant investor, and uses its influence to persuade companies to act in a more sustainable manner.

Tackling climate change can provide opportunities

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are increasingly important in investment decision-making. There are clear benefits to engaging with companies.
