Active ownership

Storebrand aims to be a driving force for lasting change in how companies are managed while ensuring the best possible return for customers and owners. 

Moving companies in a more sustainable direction

Storebrand's sustainable investment team is in dialogue with a large number of companies each year, seeking to influence them to move in a more sustainable direction.

By questioning companies about their sustainability practices and development, we challenge them to be more proactive in addressing these issues. In our experience, we achieve the best results through cooperation with other investors and targeted engagement with companies where our ownership level is highest.

Engagement themes 2021-23

The Storebrand Sustainability team has prioritised four engagement themes for 2021-2023. The themes align with the Sustainable Development Goals and focus on financially material topics that address environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
