Nordic Credit Partners makes significant investment in sustainability – hires Sustainability Manager and appoints Sustainability Council
Cecilia Bevik-Cronqvist has been appointed Head of Sustainable Investing at Nordic Credit Partners ("NCP"). In this role, Cecilia will lead NCP's strategic work within sustainability, assume the overall responsibility for sustainability analysis in the portfolio management and continue to develop NCP's reporting on sustainability.
Cecilia joins NCP from Institutional Shareholder Services - ESG (formerly Ethix SRI) where she worked with ESG analysis focused on anti-corruption, human rights, and environmental issues. Her work included qualitative and quantitative corporate analysis based on UN's sustainability initiative Global Compact, international norms and standards and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Prior to that, Cecilia worked as a sustainability consultant within EY Climate Change and Sustainability Services.
To support Cecilia in her work, NCP has also appointed a Sustainability Council consisting of Gunnar Eliasson, board member of NCP, Cecilia Widebäck West, former Head of Sustainability at SEB, and Ossian Ekdahl, Chief Active Ownership Officer at The First Swedish National Pension Fund, AP1. The Sustainability Council will focus on strategic sustainability issues and report to NCP’s Board of Directors.
“This strong commitment to sustainability is a natural next step for NCP to match our investors' ever-increasing focus on these issues. After seven years with market-leading returns, we are now also becoming leaders within sustainability”, says Björn Wolrath, Chairman of NCP.
"I am proud of these recruitments and look forward to continue to integrate sustainability as a natural part of the thorough due diligence process that constitutes the foundation of NCP's successful portfolio management", says Jakob Eliasson, CEO of NCP.
“It is with great enthusiasm that I take on the task of further developing NCP's sustainability work. I have been given a clear mandate and look forward to an active dialogue with portfolio companies, investors, and other stakeholders in the financial market on these issues”, says Cecilia Bevik-Cronqvist, incoming Head of Sustainable Investing at NCP.
Cecilia will take up her position on 2 November.
