Sustainability /
a long-term perspective

Being a world-class company and a world class investor includes ensuring high environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards. Sustainability goes hand-in-hand with Altor’s longer-term ownership horizon. Altor’s commitment goes beyond compliance with rules and regulations – it’s intended to ensure that Altor contributes to the creation of companies that promote a sustainable future for business, society and the environment.

Altor Funds formalized its ESG efforts through an Investment and Ownership Policy, launched in 2012. The policy outlines how we capture and manage Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) related matters – risk and opportunities – in the investment process and as active owners.

Altor Funds are signatories of PRI, The Principles for Responsible Investment, and are committed to PRI’s Six Principles. Altor is providing an annual report to PRI. The outcome of historical reports is available on this site, along with the Altor Investment and Ownership Policy.

In Altor’s view, environmental, social, and governance topics are not to be looked at from a pure compliance and risk angle. High ESG performance can be an important driver of financial value creation, which is proven in several of our portfolio companies.
