Accent Equity Partners publishes sustainability report for 2017

Stockholm, 26 June 2018

Accent Equity Partners AB is proud to publish its sustainability report covering the year 2017. The report highlights sustainability activities in Accent Equity Partners AB and the portfolio companies of the Accent Equity funds and will be published annually going forward.

Sustainability and sustainable investments are highly prioritised topics at Accent Equity Partners AB. In 2012, Accent Equity Partners AB became one of the first Nordic investment advisors to become a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investments (UN PRI). Since then, the sustainability work has been continuously developed and is an integrated part of Accent Equity Partners AB’s evaluation process for recommendations to the Accent Equity funds.

“It feels very encouraging that the work that has been done over the last few years has culminated in the possibility to publish our own sustainability report. As a considerate and responsible investment advisor and member of the broader society, we have since long incorporated sustainability principles into our internal code of conduct, while simultaneously formalising our advisory processes with respect to sustainability. It is therefore exciting to see a growing interest for these issues from the investors of the Accent Equity funds, the Accent Equity funds’ portfolio companies as well as from the industry in general. We welcome this trend and look forward to continue to be a forerunner in the industry through increased transparency and by the activities we conduct in the sustainability area”, says Niklas Sloutski, CEO of Accent Equity Partners AB.

The report includes a summary of the year’s activities, processes and governance within sustainability at Accent Equity Partners AB, as well as key performance indicators from the portfolio companies of the Accent Equity funds.

The report has been made available to the general public through the publishing on Accent Equity Partners AB’s website. The report is available for reading and downloading at www.accentequitypartners.se/aboutus/sustainability-report
