For AP6, responsible investments and sustainability are prerequisites for delivering a long-term high return. Sustainable development is fundamental to the well-being of future generations and for generating an economic return to future pensioners. As a Swedish, state-owned pension fund, AP6 can and should be a forerunner for responsible investments and sustainability.
Since 2013, sustainability has been an integral part of AP6’s investing activities, e.g. as a component of the review and follow-up on investments. As an investor in various types of businesses, sectors and geographic locations, it is necessary to have a broad approach to sustainability, based on international agreements on human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. AP6’s Code of Conduct provides the foundation for its responsible investment activities. Each year, the Board establishes sustainability targets for investing activities.
