Capital Finance International, CFI.co, has acknowledged Norvestor and our family of portfolio companies for our impact and efforts in sustainability management with the award “Best Sustainable Equity Investor Nordics 2022”. This is the third consecutive year Norvestor receives this accolade. Sustainability is a cornerstone of our investment strategy, and we are convinced that businesses contributing positively to society and in combating climate change will build superior long-term value.
Our teams based in Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Luxembourg together with the family of Norvestor portfolio companies are committed to making positive and valuable contributions – to shareholders, clients, employees and the communities in which we operate. Reducing the carbon emissions of Norvestor’s portfolio is one of our main objectives.
