Sustainability

Together we create a better future

Start your green journey by identifying exactly where you stand today. Then our experts will help you going forward.

To get an overview of your footprint, you need to look at the big picture

Lifestyle

In Scandinavia, we have a high standard of living compared to the rest of the world. This means that our way of life leaves a large footprint on the planet. Do you want to see how your way of life affects the planet?

Investments

All investments affect the planet. An investment of USD one million produces an annual carbon footprint equivalent to 35 long-haul flights.

Business

As a business owner, you can exercise considerable influence over the footprint left by your business. Our experts can guide you towards zero emissions.

Nordic centre of excellence for sustainability and ownership

Businesses often account for 70 per cent of an owner’s total footprint. Implementing the right measures can have major ripple effects not just for your own company, but also for suppliers, customers and employees.

To help our clients play their part in the transition to a zero-emission society, we have established a Nordic centre of excellence for sustainability and ownership, with experts providing advisory services.

How we work with sustainability in our investment portfolios

All investments affect the environment. This applies regardless of whether you invest directly in one company, via index funds or choose active management. Our main approach to investments is change. This means that through our investments we mainly choose to influence companies to implement positive changes, rather than opting out and excluding them.

Our partners

How we work with Skift

In order to achieve set climate goals, the business sector must cooperate and share experiences. As a way of contributing to this, Formue joined Skift in January 2020. Skift is a network for business climate leaders who want to accelerate Norway’s transition to a low-carbon economy, delivering on commitments by 2030. Together, its members aim to demonstrate how the transition to a zero-emission society can create new business opportunities.
