In the IRRI Survey, published in the beginning of 2016, AP4 is ranked number seven when the question “Which asset owner contributes most to the wider SRI debate”? is asked. Out of the top ten ranked pension funds, AP4 is the only Swedish.
IRRI stands for Independent Research in Responsible Investment, and the survey is the globally-authoritative review of trends in independent SRI & corporate governance research.
In 2015, 1 287 analysts, portfolio managers, CSR and IR managers from 681 firms participated in the survey.
AP4 is ranked number seven with the following motivation: ”Sweden’s AP4 ranked seventh, thanks to CEO Mats Andersson’s vocal support of environmental causes and his team’s work to reduce the portfolio’s carbon output”.
