AP6 manages a portfolio worth SEK 26.4 billion (approximately USD 3 billion) and has as its mission to create high long-term returns to the benefit of Swedish pensioners by investing in unlisted companies through a risk-balanced approach. The investments are made either directly in the companies or indirectly through funds.
For the second year running, AP6 has conducted an analysis of climate change in order to improve understanding of climate change-related risks and opportunities in the portfolio. The analysis consists of two parts, the first consists of carbon footprint and the second maps how portfolio companies and funds manage climate change in their operations and investments. South Pole Group has been engaged to carry out the analysis together with internal resources within AP6.
