Tundra Fonder’s Semiannual Sustainability Report shares highlights from the first six months of 2017.
At Tundra we believe that ‘ESG’ – the inclusion of environmental concerns, social factors and corporate governance – in evaluating investment processes and strategies is essential. Corporate behaviour reflective of sustainability principles (in all aspects of ESG) tends to improve business competitiveness and reduce reputational risks. Tundra has signed up to the UN Global Compact, the UN-led initiative Principles for Responsible Investing (UNPRI), and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). All of our funds are screened through an ESG lens for international norm-breaches. Our efforts within sustainability have been recognised. Earlier this year Fondmarknaden.se (a Swedish online fund distribution platform) awarded Tundra Opportunities Frontier Fund the Best Emerging Markets Fund 2016; and the Tundra Sustainable Frontier Fund received the prestigious “Best Fund” award in the category Rising Star of the Year 2016 by the Swedish business magazine Privata Affärer.
In this report, we showcase the ESG efforts undertaken by our companies included in the Tundra Sustainable Frontier Fund. The report also provides glimpses of the countries where these holdings are located; and describe Tundra’s engagement efforts with existing companies, especially with regard to existing and planned ESG practices and programmes.
