Heimdal Nordic takes social responsibility seriously and we strive to do our utmost to incorporate relevant aspects of ESG in our work and behavior on a daily basis.
ESG is basically the company’s and its employees’ commitment to responsible behavior on all matters both big and small and on micro and macro level. This is done, among other things, by taking into account employee rights, social conditions, environment and work environment.
ESG is an integrated part of the company’s DNA which is manifested by adopting the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals as well as the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact. However, our services and core business are focused on financing and debt related business in the Nordics. This basically means that not all the goals and principles easily find practical application in our daily work.
Therefore, this policy is generally adopted to ensure awareness by everybody in the company of the overall approach which must reflect in everything we do.
This also means that we must focus on i) the things we can impact on a daily basis and ii) areas we can impact via investments made under a mandate or via advisory or portfolios we service on behalf of other investors.
