A sustainable future

A sustainable future

The world is facing major environmental, societal, technological and political challenges. We must all fulfil our social and corporate responsibilities and contribute to a livable future.

We believe that companies wishing to achieve long-term success should consider their impact on the environment and society. The financial sector can and must play an integral part in the global transition towards a more sustainable future. As an investor and investment adviser for capital allocation, we know the important role of the financial markets. However, our responsibility extends beyond that; we must also ensure our business activities have a positive impact.

Sustainable Business

Responsible and sustainable corporate governance is essential for maintaining trust with our stakeholders and our long-term stability. We consider it our duty to be mindful of the social and environmental consequences of our business activities and act accordingly, including committing to net zero, as well as offering our employees an attractive, safe and healthy working environment.

Investing sustainably

We believe that allocating capital towards companies focused on the long-term sustainability of our planet and people acts as important catalyst for the changes that our world needs. In line with this, we offer clients the option of investing in sustainable businesses through their investment portfolio.

This involves both avoiding exposure to environmentally and socially controversial businesses, but also positively investing solutions to the challenges we face.

Sustainability frameworks

The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) requires EU financial market participants to disclose information on various ESG considerations to potential investors and on their website. The regulation aims to deliver transparency within financial markets, preventing greenwashing and ensuring comparability. Together with our parent company LGT, we welcome greater clarity in this part of the market and set out our disclosures accordingly.

United Nations Sustainability Development Goals

In 2015, the United Nations (UN) devised the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) in order to "achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." Through the LGT Sustainability Strategy 2025, we have identified the eight UN SDGs that we believe we can make a meaningful and active contribution to. These eight are shown here.
