    Icelandic: Norræni fasteignasjóðurinn Storebrand Nordic Real Estate Fund stuðlar meðal annars að umhverfis- eða félagslegum einkennum samkvæmt SFDR greininni. 8 flokkun. Fjárfestingar sjóðsins í atvinnuhúsnæði miða að því að 1) stuðla að umhverfismarkmiði um að draga úr loftslagsbreytingum í því að leitast við að samræmast 1,5 gráðu losunarferli og 2) stuðla að félagslegu markmiði heilsu og vellíðan meðal leigjenda, notenda, birgja. og nágranna.

    1. No sustainable investment objective

    This financial product promotes environmental or social characteristics, but it does not have as its objective sustainable investment.
     

    1. Environmental or social characteristics of the financial product
      1. Environmental: The portfolio will strive to be aligned with the 1,5 degree emission pathway and science based targets, among others seeking means of reduced emissions through reduction in the consumption of energy and material resources, and promotion of renewable energy.
      2. Social: Promotion of healthy buildings and neighborhoods that support health, safety, well-being and productivity among tenants, users, suppliers and neighbors.

     

    The indicators used to measure promoted characteristics are Environmental indicators: Carbon efficiency and Energy efficiency; Social indicator: Tenant satisfaction; and Combined environmental and social indicator: Building sustainability certification – share of investments certified.
     

    1. Investment strategy

    The Fund will follow a Core Plus strategy with the following characteristics (for limits and thresholds see the prospectus chapter 1): (i) focus on Investments in the geographical regions of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark with the highest weighting on Norway and Sweden , (ii) focus on traditional commercial real estate sectors as office, hotel, logistics, retail and other; (iii) focus on income producing assets with stable cash-flow and some capital growth potential; (iv) maximum leverage of 50 % LTV, and (v) ensuring general environmental, social and governance ("ESG") criteria and promoting selected ESG characteristics.

      1. Pre investment, step one is a negative screening on investments that do not live up to the SAM sustainable investment policy, or that hold an ESG standard that cannot be improved properly to promote selected characteristics within acceptable effort or means. In step two, an asset-level environmental and/or social risk assessment is conducted as a standard part of the overall due diligence process, along with i.a judicial, financial and technical assessments. The Fund shall to a greatest possible extent consist of properties with high environmental standard, and that hold a third-party environmental certification.
      2. Post investment sustainability is integrated in management and development of standing investments in order to best attain the E/S characteristics. This phase covers portfolio and property management, monitoring, communication, development and continuous improvement processes, including:
        1. Asset-level monitoring of E/S characteristics and principal adverse impacts in order to establish baseline and follow-up development.
        2. Based on environmental and social risk assessments include improvement strategies for the properties’ environmental and social performance in property business plans and day-to-day optimization of building operation.
        3. Annual reporting to and sustainability rating by GRESB (Global sustainability benchmark for real assets) and other relevant international ESG leadership standards.
        4. Regular communication to investors and public disclosure on ESG performance
      3. Policy to assess good governance practices: The Fund will invest directly in properties through single purpose vehicles with no administration. Investments and management of investments follow the Storebrand sustainability policy, among others excluding certain tenants, suppliers or business partners. The Investment Advisor holds 1st line governance practices in transactions and property management, with 2nd line compliance officer reporting quarterly. Policies are continuously developed, 1st line personnel do annual mandatory courses and risk assessments covering i.a. Anti-Money Laundering, corruption and GDPR.

     

    1. Proportion of investments

    There is no planned asset allocation for this Fund. The aim is that all investments promote the chosen E/S characteristics. There is no guarantee however that there will not be a property for which it i.a is not possible to get an environmental certificate.

     

    1. Monitoring of environmental or social characteristics

    For the investments that the Fund will make, the information in most cases can be made directly available to the manager after acquisition and ESG due diligence. Through the installation and /or reading of meters (for energy and carbon efficiency), through annual tenant satisfaction surveys and through implementing in-use environmental certification, the chosen characteristics will be monitored throughout the lifecycle of the Fund at appropriate frequencies as part of the environmental management system and improvement program with internal control mechanisms. Progress will be tracked and reported annually.

     

    1. Methodologies

    The monitoring and measuring means described above give ground for observation of the indicator development. A positive year-by-year development, or the stabilization at a good performance level, will indicate that the Fund promotes well on the chosen E/S characteristics.

     

    1. Data sources and processing

    The data monitoring described above shows the data are produced directly as part of activities in property management. First-hand source insight, using approved meters with automatic readings and monitoring systems, using third party tenant satisfaction surveys, building certifications and emissions accounting, safeguards data quality before and after the limited processing to present results. Apart from exceptions where tenant electricity consumption is not available, nor the respective parts of GHG emissions, there will be no estimation of data.

     

    1. Limitations to methodologies and data

    There are no further limitations to the methodologies and to the data sources referred above.

     

    1. Due diligence

    Asset-level ESG and other thematic due diligences will be carried out by external advisors as a standard procedure in pre investment phase. The internal investment committee will assess the compiled findings before investment decision is made.

     

    1. Engagement policies

    The investment strategy comprises an active ownership policy in the post investment phase. This is a prerequisite for, and directly linked to, the promotion of the chosen E/S characteristics, and producing a positive development in the indicators. A generally high sustainability focus, characterized by third party certified environmental management systems of main actors and suppliers as well as of the buildings and the property management, and also the scrutinizing GRESB benchmarking described below, constitutes a framework that prevents sustainability-related controversies in property management.

     

    1. Index designated as reference benchmark

    No specific index is designated as a reference benchmark to attain the environmental or social characteristics promoted by the Fund.

     

    While not having a designated index as reference benchmark, the Fund will use the Global ESG Benchmark for Real Assets, GRESB, as an indicator for comparison of overall ESG performance with reference to best practice criteria of the GRESB framework, and on the specific environmental/social characteristics that the Fund promotes. The GRESB assessment is an annual investor-driven global ESG benchmark and reporting framework that measures absolute and relative quality within ESG areas material to the asset class. The benchmark covers the characteristics promoted by the Fund through the specific performance "aspects" of "GHG", "Energy" and "Tenants & Community". Other material environmental and social performance aspects are assessed in addition to management aspects and are aggregated into an overall ESG benchmark. More information in GRESB Real Estate Reference Guide and the Scoring Document.
