Responsible investing is taking care of the future pensioners
The responsibility for pension funds extends decades into the future. We create lifelong security and ensure that our customers receive the pensions they have earned, both now and in the future. Our principles for responsible investment are also based on corporate social responsibility: our accountability to policyholders and the insured.
Responsibility is an integral part of Elo's strategy and values. The principles of responsible investment apply to all investment assets and are implemented taking into account each asset class and investment style.
We operate in different investment markets in such a way that we achieve the best possible and adequate return in all market conditions at the desired risk level for the pension assets. As a long-term pension investor, we believe that responsibility strongly integrated into the investment process is essential for managing investment risks, achieving good investment returns, and identifying societal changes and systemic risks. We engage our investees by ourselves or in collaboration with other investors and stakeholders. Ownership policy is also a central part of our responsible investment practices.
We incorporate ESG (environment, social, and good governance) issues into our investment analysis and decision-making processes. We believe that only sustainable business operations can achieve sustainable results over the long term.
Our responsible investment practices consist of the following:
- Engagement and collaboration
- Climate policy for investments
- Norm-based screening
- Sustainable solutions
- Ownership policy
