AP4 publishes climate report in accordance with the TCFD's recommendations

Today the Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund (AP4) published a climate report in accordance with the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures’ (TCFD) recommendations. The report is structured in accordance with the TCFD’s four thematic areas: Governance, Strategy, Risk Management, and Metrics and Targets. In addition, the report provides examples of AP4’s climate-related risks and opportunities.

Climate change is one the greatest challenges of our time, affecting essentially all states, industries and companies. AP4 believes that transparent reporting of climate-related risks and opportunities contributes to a faster transition to a low fossil fuel society. A rapid transition is necessary to minimise climate-related risks and negative impacts on ecosystems, societies and economies. AP4 therefore supports and reports in accordance with the TCFD’s recommendations.

“We believe that maintaining a sustainability perspective is a prerequisite for long-term successful asset management. It is for this reason that we at AP4 integrate sustainability, with special focus on climate and the environment, in our investment processes,” comments Niklas Ekvall, CEO of AP4.

AP4’s mission is to contribute to the financial security of current and future pensioners by managing part of the national pension system’s buffer capital. AP4’s long-term perspective, responsibility as an owner and strong commitment to sustainability create opportunities for high returns at a low cost. In this way AP4 works for more secure pensions.
