Söderberg & Partners has a Sustainability Council and a Head of Sustainability that are responsible for the overall sustainability work at group level. However, we believe sustainability efforts are most impactful and efficient when the whole organisation is involved. All employees are therefore naturally a part of, and responsible for our sustainability work so that we are all contributing to delivering on our sustainability targets.
Sustainability analysis and tools: On an overarching level, Söderberg & Partners contributes to a sustainable society through the advice and services we offer our customers. Our analyses and traffic-light system form the basis of the advice, as we rate solutions in a way that is adapted to the customer’s individual circumstances. Söderberg & Partners has, for several years, analysed and rated life insurance companies, unit-linked insurance companies and funds from a sustainability perspective. This is done in order to make it easier to choose the product that has an actual impact in practice.
Dialogue and engagement: Söderberg & Partners stands for openness and transparency, and by conducting dialogues with our product suppliers about the strengths and weaknesses of their sustainability work we can influence the market in the right direction. When we analyse and assess companies in our sustainability analyses, this too has an impact. Just as a traffic light can switch from red to yellow and green, our analysis method means that everyone can always get a little better and a little greener, in a double
Training and awareness: Our employees’ knowledge of sustainability issues and responsible investing is fundamental to our overall sustainability work and our advisory service. We are continuously making efforts to communicate about our sustainability work, internally as well as externally.
Transportation and meetings: Söderberg & Partners is expanding its business. This growth has lead to inevitable increases in travelling distances. We promote environmentally friendly travel alternatives and aim to increase use of video conferences, all to reduce our direct and external impact on the environment.
Energy and resources: Söderberg & Partners’ procurement guidelines require all our suppliers to the Swedish business to have implemented systematic environmental work that complies with the ISO 14001 Environmental Management system certification. To reduce energy consumption and the use of office paper. A new target for 2019 is to have 100% of our offices in Sweden running on green energy, something that many of our offices already do. We are working to meet this target.
