Investor initiatives

In order to achieve greater impact in the work with sustainability, AP4 collaborates with other international investors. This can involve initiatives and projects in a number of areas. Below you can read about some of the investor initiatives we are part of.

Seafood Initiative

Seafood Initiative is supported by AP4 together with AP1-3. The increasing demand for fish products has highlighted problems in the industry supply chain, such as poor working conditions, slave labor and over exploitation of fisheries areas, predominantly in Asia. This shareholder initiative is led by the British insurance company Aviva. Letters, listing these issues, were sent to ten companies connected to these fishing activities. The aim is to identify the leaders and the laggers, and to persuade the companies that are laggers to take steps to improve their business.
