AP2 is proud to have been appointed a member of the PRI Leaders´Group 2020 and to be recognized for the responsible investment work the Fund has done regarding this year´s theme, climate reporting. AP2 is one of 36 investors who receive the award and one of two from Sweden (AP2 and Swedfund).
The Leaders’ Group showcases signatories at the cutting edge of responsible investment, and highlights trends in what these leading signatories are doing. The signatories’ reporting responses and assessment data are used to identify those that are doing great work in responsible investment, both across the organisation, and with a particular focus on a given theme each year.
“I am delighted to congratulate AP2 for qualifying for the 2020 Leaders’ Group, and to formally recognise your excellent disclosure and advanced efforts in this year’s Leaders’ Group theme: climate reporting”, says Fiona Reynolds, CEO at the PRI.
AP2 and climate reporting
Climate is one of AP2’s focus areas, which means that climate issues are, where relevant, integrated in the analysis and decision-making processes for all asset classes. The ambition is to be transparent and develop the portfolio in line with the Paris Agreement.
AP2 reports, since 2017, in accordance with the Task force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations. These are a set of recommendations which helps actors in the financial markets to understand their climate-related risks and opportunities.
“This recognition is proof of the ambitious work AP2 is doing on responsible investments, especially on climate”, says Christina Olivecrona, Senior Sustainability Analyst at AP2.
