What is Active Ownership?
Active Ownership means that, as investors, we use shareholder rights influentially. This includes an active dialogue with companies (Engagement) and consciously using voting rights associated with the investments (Voting). The aim is to actively promote and improve sustainability practices of the companies we invest in.

As your asset manager, we take on Active Ownership for you. We exercise shareholder rights and aim to achieve positive financial and sustainability outcomes for you.

Thus, we vote at shareholder meetings, raise our voice, and actively engage in dialogue with companies.

Active Ownership is a key part of our sustainable investment process and fiduciary duty aiming for financial and sustainability objectives.

        Active Ownership means that we use our vote and voice as investors. We vote at annual general meetings of invested companies and voice sustainability topics as part of engagement activities in direct dialogue or as part of collaborative investor initiatives.

        The aim is to influence the management and boards of directors to encourage positive change in the companies’ sustainable practices, contribute to positive outcomes for nature and society and the company's financial objectives.

        We vote at the annual general assemblies of invested companies. The votes can include board member elections, say on climate to implement climate targets, say on pay on remuneration policies as well as shareholder resolutions.

        Our focus themes are social and environmental topics linked to the achievement of one or several UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Additionally, we currently focus on biodiversity, climate, gender equality and access to medicine.

        Yes, we will happily give you two examples:

        1) We voted at P&G's annual general assembly to better manage their palm oil supply chain in Indonesia, to protect forests and the livelihoods of Indigenous communities.

        2) We voted at Metlife's annual general assembly to further improve their positive impact and increase the diversity of their board.
