Partnerships Building an
Equitable, Low-Carbon Society
We work closely with all our portfolio companies to make a positive impact on people and the planet. We believe that acting responsibly leads to better investment results and we are convinced that a sustainable approach is the right thing to do.
Norvestor Sustainability Objectives
Reduce greenhouse gases
Since 2018, Norvestor portfolio companies have reduced their total carbon footprint by 28% and halved their CO2e intensity (tCO2/revenue) on a like-for-like basis. We aim to further reduce the carbon footprint of all portfolio companies and support them in establishing decarbonisation roadmaps.
Reduce climate-related risks and capture risk-reduction opportunities
We adhere to the four pillars recommended by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) and report annually on our progress. We look for opportunities in portfolio companies where the portfolio company can benefit from their actions in reducing climate-related risks.
Ensure diverse and inclusive workforces
We encourage inclusive work environments by embracing differences and encouraging inclusion. We commit to equal opportunities and ensure portfolio companies respect their employees’ needs and perspectives. We support portfolio companies in implementing inclusive policies and practices, fostering diverse cultures at all levels, and respecting human rights at all times
Ensure safe and attractive workplaces
We aim to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all employees. We help to create attractive workplaces where employees feel valued and can bring out the best in themselves.
Ensure accountability and regulatory compliance
We ensure portfolio companies have well-defined and established governance processes. We provide portfolio companies with policies and procedures that go further than complying with the latest regulations and standards. We help portfolio companies create a culture of transparency and accountability, where employees can speak up and are empowered to act.
Contribute to UN Sustainable Development Goals
We aim to create a positive impact on society and the world by continually identifying ways our portfolio companies can make meaningful contributions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We work continuously with our portfolio companies to improve their impact on the world and society through more sustainable business practices. We also invest in companies with innovative solutions to global challenges. It’s a partnership approach that puts people at the heart of everything we do: our team, the management and employees of companies we invest in, and their customers.
