If you're interested in an environmental and ethical pension-fund saving in Sweden you'll not find any oddities if you log on to your pension account at the Swedish pension agency since you'll then find that the pre-chosen Seventh AP-fund, AP7, that you'll get placed in if you don't make any active choice, are among those 101 selectable pension funds that have been labeled as environmental-ethical , through its equity and fixed-income funds. Despite this there are a lot of stock in companies that have been figuring in the media for alleged environmental- and human rights crimes to be found among the holdings of the Seventh AP-funds equity fund. In this essay I come to the conclusion that AP7, despite it's potentially environmental- and ethics-friendly policy, neither through accepted theories about business ethics nor through the Swedish pension agency’s definition lives up to be an environmental- and ethics-friendly fund. This is done by first comparing its policy by accepted theories about business-ethics and then by seeing how well its investments of today corresponds with its own sustainability policy. (Less)
