Environmental, Social and Governance

In addition to securing high financial returns, delivering on aspects related to corporate social responsibility and ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) is an integral part of Argentum’s business activities. This applies to investment decisions, our relations with investments partners, and the company’s own operations.

Key aspects of Argentum’s ESG work:

In addition to this, Argentum has also prepared and included its own requirements for social responsibility in its investment activities.
  • Argentum has performance indicators related to environmental and social responsibility. This applies to our internal goals for the organization and objectives relating to our investment activities.
