Our observation process

The observation procedures entail that Storebrand monitors company progress closely and continues dialogue with the companies, informing them of our expectations of measures and results.

The dialogue centres around improvements

  • Full traceability, transparency and monitoring of direct and indirect suppliers across all commodity supply chains, starting with areas of particularly high deforestation and conversion risk.

  • A public commitment to not source commodities from suppliers that have deforested or converted native vegetation, legally or illegally, on any part of their properties after January 1st, 2020. This cut-off date applies to the Cerrado and any ecosystems where earlier cut-off dates are not already in place.

  • Insertion of contractual commitments for all suppliers to restore all areas deforested or converted after January 1st, 2020, and all areas illegally deforested or converted prior to 2020.

While companies remain on the observation list, portfolios without prior holdings are restricted from investing in them. Portfolios with prior positions are allowed to maintain these positions.

The returns can be negative as a result of price losses. There is risk associated with investments in the fund due to market movements, developments in currency, interest rates, economic conditions, industry- and company-specific conditions. Before investing, customers are advised to familiarize themselves with the fund's key information and prospectus, which contains further information about the fund's characteristics and costs.
