Transition in numbers – how we measure our progress in the fund
ESG matters is an integral part of the fund’s strategy. All investments will have a purpose of increasing the amount of renewable energy in the Nordic region, whether if it’s establishing a new solar park, to acquire and upgrade a hydropower plant to increase its energy output, or to invest in a grid to enable the transfer of green energy.
The fund is classified as an article 9 fund (a dark-green fund according to the SFDR regulation issued by the EU, with sustainable investments as its objective), investing in companies aiming to solve the global climate challenges.
The fund will measure the amount of renewable energy created by its investments in order to secure that its targets are met. The fund will report according to the EU Taxonomy.
Furthermore, the fund will contribute to SEB Investment Management’s overarching aim to align investments with the Paris Climate Agreement and to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions from its investments by 2040.
