Our three largest shareholders include: the industrial company Manor Group; the Canadian asset management firm Greystone Infrastructure; and the property company Ernst Rosén.
Together, they own 76% of Rabbalshede Kraft shares — and their long-term interest in renewable energy in the Nordic countries enables us to act for the long term.
Why did you invest in Rabbalshede Kraft?
- Ernst Rosén’s investment was based on an interest in developing alternative energy sources for a reduced environmental impact, and a strong faith in Rabbalshede Kraft AB’s opportunities in the wind power market. Through ownership, it can also be noted that Ernst Rosén’s share in Rabbalshede Kraft closely corresponds to the need for energy in Ernst Rosén’s property portfolio.
How important is ESG in your investment decision-making process?
- Greystone is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. Incorporating these Principles in our investment strategy is important in achieving optimal and predictable investor returns, while maintaining a strong sustainability profile. We support the Scandinavian focus toward greater reliance on renewables and think in many ways the region is at the leading edge of this increasingly global trend. We are pleased to be a part of that journey via Rabbalshede Kraft.
