First AP Fund Has Divested from Fossil Fuel Companies

Sweden has a total of 7 state-managed pension funds (AP1-AP7). The First fund, AP1, with CEO Kristin Magnusson Bernand, is the only one that has completely distanced itself from investing in fossil fuel companies.
The First AP Fund has already in 2020 decided to divest from companies engaged in fossil fuel activities. This decision follows a period of analyzing how climate risks could impact the global environment and the Fund's investments. The Fund believes that the shift towards a less fossil fuel-dependent economy introduces significant uncertainty for companies in the coal, oil, and gas industries, posing higher financial risks. The move to divest from fossil fuels is part of reducing the Fund's climate risk exposure. The Fund also aims to achieve a carbon-neutral portfolio by 2050, setting measurable interim goals.
This is great leadership from Kristin and the AP1 management team and they deserve a lot of Climate Love 💚!
The other AP funds allow investments in oil, coal, and gas to varying degrees. The worst is AP7, which holds the largest share of fossil companies of them all. It is more than strange how the different AP Funds can make such different decisions. The right leadership means a lot

                        The ideal state of being is always just doing what we believe. AP1 is exactly doing it and the success of AP1,therefore, shall encourage others. It shall be great to have an analysis of decision making process of AP1 and AP7 vis-a-vis their current achievements. Staying away from fossil fuel is still a hard task for most of the companies. Getting out of comfort zone is neither easy nor is comfortable. Gratitude for sharing this encouraging and critical piece of information.

                                  This is the best way to shift the narrative. If AP1 succeeds then it has the potential to reinvigorate ways to help the planet and still make money for the investors or the common people. After all, that's it right! If it impacts on our hip pocket we tend to selfishly defend our current position. If we can help and not have to financially sacrifice too much, we have a chance!;

                                        With the climate breakdown accelerating at and exponential rate. It beggars belief that people will still invest in an industry that created the problem and still drives it. The perfect representation was shown by Al Gore when he held up the scales with gold on one side and our home Mother Earth on the other. Unfortunately it is now tipping towards the Gold. The paradox is that with no Earth there is no gold.Sad Times.

                                          @uwe_gramann Agree 100%....unfortunately, money can be made in that industry without having to do too much so people put their fingers in their ears and pretend not to hear the earth crying out for help.
