Climate-related portfolio ambitions of the Swiss Life Group
A thermal coal phase-out strategy for the proprietary corporate bond portfolio has been formalised, in order to contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable and low-carbon economy as well as to avoid the risk of stranded assets. Throughout the past year, Swiss Life’s exposure to companies that derive 10% or more of their revenues from thermal coal, either from mining or selling it to external parties, was reduced to 0%. In equities, Swiss Life screens its index universe for the same thermal coal criteria. Since Swiss Life follows a passive investment approach on the equity side, which provides less flexibility to exclude certain companies, some exceptions are required.
