We believe that it is good for society and for the users of the buildings, and that it will yield higher returns for investors.

Policy for sustainable real estate investments in Storebrand

Good sustainability efforts will help safeguard assets and long-term risk-adjusted returns on real estate investments, while also helping to make the world a better place.

The sustainability work should generally be based on the

  • United Nations’ Sustainability Development Goals (UN SDG)
  • United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI)
  • United Nations’ principles for human rights, environment and anti-corruption (UN Global Compact)

Transparency, measurement, reporting, certification and cooperation shall characterize the work. High standards of ethics, corporate governance and compliance with legal requirements are to be maintained.

The strategy for investment, management and property development is intended to help minimise the environmental footprint and negative impact on the outside world. It should also seek to utilise the opportunities for value creation in sustainability, and to make a positive contribution to the environment, health and safety of its organization, the value chain and the environment. The risk and life cycle perspective should be fundamental.

A fund having performed well in the past is no guarantee for future returns. Other factors with an impact on how a fund may perform in the future include market developments, the fund manager's performance, the fund's risk profile, and management fees. When the shares a fund is invested in decline in value, it may lead to negative returns.
