Today Accent Equity releases its 2021 Sustainability Report, which provides an update of our key achievements and highlights sustainability performance in several key areas of the portfolio companies.
“Sustainability is a highly prioritised topic within Accent Equity and an integral part of our enhancement strategy. Coming from several years of steady progress, 2021 represented a significant leap forward in many aspects. We recruited a full-time Sustainability Manager and formulated new, and more ambitious, climate and sustainability targets”, says Niklas Sloutski, CEO.
Key highlights of the report include:
- Committing to take ambitious actions on mitigating climate change. Accent Equity has committed to set science-based targets and reduce emissions in alignment with Paris agreement and to limit global warming to 1.5°C
- Launch of a new sustainability strategy and sustainability targets for both Accent Equity and the funds by performing a complete materiality assessment and engaging in several stakeholder dialogues
- Status update on each portfolio company's 2021 key achievements
“The private equity sector has a critical role in mitigating climate change and driving sustainability practices. At the same time, sustainability is also critical in building best-in-class companies and attain long-term growth. We look very much forward to continue this journey together with the portfolio companies and improving the sustainability performance”, says Johanna Nilsson Palm, Sustainability Manager.
The 2021 report has been made available to the public on Accent Equity’s website: accentequity.se/sustainability
