For Varma, responsible operations means, above all, securing solvency, high-quality implementation of pension provision and supporting workability.
Responsibility is an integral part of our investment operations and ownership practices.
We take responsibility for mitigating climate change in our investment portfolio, our supply chain and our operations alike.
For us, looking after the workability and competence of Varma employees is a matter of honour.
And it all culminates in open communication.
In 2016, we became the first Finnish pension company to publish a climate policy, which details our efforts to achieve a lower-carbon portfolio. We took a major step towards achieving our targets already in 2016, when, for instance, the carbon footprint of our equity investments declined 22%.
Responsible investment is an integral part of our investment operations and ownership practices.
Our investment process includes an ESG analysis. We focus on analysing the most important ESG aspects and their impact on the return on investments and risks on a longer term.
We have published Varma’s Principles for Responsible Investment and specific policies for different asset classes. Read more about responsible investment in the section Financial information and investments.
Varma is a member of Fibs, a corporate responsibility network in Finland, and Finsif, Finland's Sustainable Investment Forum. We have signed the Diversity Charter, and as a member of Diversity Charter Finland we are willing to engage in developing our diversity management and practices.
Varma has joined the Montréal Carbon Pledge initiative supported by the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI). Under the Pledge, investors commit to measure and publicly disclose the carbon footprint of their listed equity investments on an annual basis.
Varma has signed the CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), which compiles data on companies' greenhouse gas emissions and other climate-change-related data.
Varma has also joined the Climate Partners network that fosters cooperation to reduce GHG emissions and to mitigate climate change.
Varma implemented the WWF’s Green Office environmental management system in the beginning of 2016. Our intention is to improve the Salmisaari office building’s ecological footprint and to encourage Varma employees to make eco-friendly choices in their daily lives.
One of the key targets is to make efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its own operations as well.
