Human rights policy
Companies require a social licence to operate in order to achieve long-term success. Human rights are an integral part of responsible business. Read about our Human Rights Policy on this page.
We require our investees to adhere to human rights
Human rights and adherence to them are an integral part of our operations. It is thus natural for them to be also reflected in our investment operations.
Human rights are defined based on international agreements and declarations, for example the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These rights apply equally to all regardless of age, gender, religion, ethnicity or wealth.
In addition, rights concerning working life and children are separately defined in agreements and declarations specifically related to these topics.
Our Human Rights Policy describes how we take human rights into account in our investment decisions. The guidelines describe how the policy impacts practical portfolio management.
