The French Ministry of the Environment, the Treasury and 2° Investing Initiative assigned AP4 a special mention in the presentation of this year's 2° Invest Award - the International Award on Investor Climate-Related Disclosures.

The motivation was:

AP4’s 2015 report presents a developed approach targeting the integration of climate-related policies at all stages of the investment chain. Back in 2014 as a founding member of the Portfolio Decarbonization Coalition, the fund developed a clear decarbonization strategy to be applied to an entire asset class. The presentation of this initiative in the report highlighted its innovative management of climate-related risks.

The 2° Invest Award was established to highlight the best practices in sustainability reporting. AP4 is considered to be an Early Adopter in climate integration and was the only Swedish investor to receive a special mention.
