Identifying companies with potential

Over the past half-year we have analyzed more than 60 Swedish companies and met a bunch of them, all in order to find the best companies in terms of ESG as well as financial performance and potential.

It is easy to conclude that the Swedish market in terms of ESG is a mature market with well performing companies. The focus is slowly shifting from risk management to capturing opportunities. It all started with corporate management of environmental impact, followed by including social aspects such as human rights and labour rights. Environmental and social risks still need to be addressed, but we’re happy to see that the focus is shifting. Companies are now increasingly integrating their commitment to sustainable business development with group visions, mission statements and strategies.

Trickier is, however, to find companies that have hidden opportunities and a strong potential to develop further. Some companies performing well today might be satisfied and does not aim to keep on developing, making them less interesting from our point of view. We have therefore prioritised identifying companies that have a positive trend and the ones that have identified sustainability as a platform for growth.
