About Hållbarhetsprofilen
(Swesif's Sustainability Declaration for Funds)

HP was created back in 2011 and has since been further developed with the aim of meeting the needs of fund savers and the general public to obtain information about, and be able to compare how funds apply sustainability criteria in a simple and clear way, and to describe how fund companies work with sustainable and responsible investments in their management.

In the future, the ambition is to make it compatible with the standardised template that fund companies already use with distributors, EET (European ESG Template). We have already started work on how we can best implement this and/or automate parts of the information upload to HP. If you would like to get involved in the work, you are welcome to contact someone in the Sustainability Profile project group.

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.
