Additional information

Policy on coal and other fossil fuel investments:

DIF has not made any investments in thermal coal projects to date. For DIF funds that are currently making investments, we have an exclusion list in place that prevents us from i.a. investing in companies whose business activity is primarily in the extraction and production of fossil fuels, including coal, oil or gas. Through our net zero commitment and interim 2030 target, we have taken steps to further align our investment and asset management activities with the Paris Agreement. We do not intend to develop a coal and other fossil fuel policy in addition to the above.
