Information on interim target(s) covering the proportion of assets to be managed in line with net zero



Portfolio decarbonisation reference baseline

Preliminary performance. Data per 2020. We are still backtracking data to calculate the performance for 2019.

1. 3.98 tCO2e/mSEK EVIC


Allocation to climate solutions baseline

Preliminary performance. Data per 2020. We are still backtracking data to calculate the performance for 2019.

2. 10% of AUM in climate solutions, as defined by internal taxonomy (will be updated as soon as EU Taxonomy data is available)



Portfolio decarbonisation reference target

50% carbon intensity reduction for our total AUM


Allocation to climate solutions target

Double proportion of AUM in climate solutions

GHG scopes included:

Target includes Scope 1, 2 & 3. Scope 1 & 2 has very good coverage when including estimated data (which we believe to be of high quality). Scope 3 has very good coverage but it mainly consists of sector estimates at this point in time. However, the granularity and reliability of the estimates within high climate impact sectors we believe to be of reasonably high quality.


Net Zero Investment Framework


IPCC’s 1.5°C trajectory with no or limited overshoot.

Additional information

Policy on coal and other fossil fuel investments:

Applies to 100% of AUM per 1 st of December (we are closing the last ETFs that do not comply with our exclusion strategy). See our policy for Shareholder Engagement and Responsible Investments for presentation of our exclusion strategy:

We have a broader exclusion strategy which applies for all our AUM but one ETF. This ETF is however not invested in fossil fuels, which why we say the fossil fuel exclusion strategy applies to 100% of AUM.
