Climate change is accelerating faster than measures to counteract its effects. The business community has an important role in acting and, through new innovative solutions, counteracting climate change and increasing resource efficiency. CSR Funds is behind climate goals that are compatible with the Paris Agreement and has set goals to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
CSR Funds’ direct environmental impact is limited, but we work to reduce our negative footprint and carbon dioxide emissions and take smart measures for all our portfolio companies without affecting the company’s growth. Our vision is that it is possible to serve in an ethical way and in a way that does not destroy the environment. We want to grow together with our companies in a responsible and long-term way. That is why we are behind climate goals that are compatible with the Paris Agreement and have set a goal of more than halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
We want to operate in the market according to the values we stand for. Being a committed and long-term partner means responsibility and the opportunity to work for climate-smart goals, and we do this in many different ways.
In 2021, CSR Funds began to work more long-term on the climate, environmental impact and sustainability. Since then, we have switched to 100% renewable electricity and almost completely moved all paperwork digitally.
