The team

Silje Simonsen Viste and Sondre Myge Haugland work with sustainable investing and oversee our sustainability policy. They work closely with the portfolio managers to screen each potential portfolio company against our guidelines, both before an investment is made and after a company has entered the portfolio.

"We want to be good investors and all our investments should be sustainable. We combine this with our main objective of creating good returns for our unit holders," says Sondre.


How SKAGEN invests sustainably

We report on our sustainability work on a quarterly basis.

The report lays out how we work with all aspects of sustainability – from how we incorporate ESG (environment, social and governance) factors into our investment process to how we as a company work with sustainability.
