About Hållbarhetsprofilen
(Swesif's Sustainability Declaration for Funds)

Hållbarhetsprofilen (HP) was created in 2011 and then evolved as it underwent two major upgrades. Swesif is currently driving a projekt regarding yet another upgrade of HP.

Since 10 March 2021, the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) stipulates a common sustainability reporting framework for financial products. The new version is part of the process of aligning HP with SFDR and its classifications of Article 6, 8 and 9 funds. The upgrade will also make HP more user-friendly and compatible with the EU’s standardised template (European ESG Template, EET).

The new version of HP will be launched on 1 February 2023. You are welcome to take part in the Release mingle here.

Hållbarhetsprofilen (Swesif's Sustainability Declaration for Funds, HP) is a standardised information sheet which describes a fund's approach to integrating responsible investment. The HP complements the fund's factsheet.

HP's purpose is to meet the needs of fund investors and the general public for easy and transparent information on how funds apply sustainability criteria in their management. It also enables comparability between funds.

HP is a self-declaration; the information in the document is filled in by the fund companies and is neither reviewed nor approved by Swesif. Swesif is only responsible for HP's format and guidelines.

Hållbarhetsprofilen is not a certification, label or quality stamp. It should only be seen as an information standard that allows fund companies to report how their funds take into account sustainability in an industry-uniform way.

All the completed Hållbarhetsprofilen fund declarations are assembled on Hållbarhetsprofilen's website. The profiles are also available on several fund platforms.
