Bure's environmental impact

We are a small organisation, and our environmental impact comes mainly from carbon dioxide emissions from business trips and energy consumed by our office in Stockholm. A lesser proportion relates to purchasing electronics, office supplies, and waste from our office operations. We act based on the precautionary principle in all decisions that may have a negative environmental impact. For example, we purchase 100 per cent renewable energy for our office and continuously collect data about our energy consumption and climate impact through greenhouse gas emissions. Our Environmental Policy describes how we should act and take responsibility for the environment to live up to these principles within the context of our operations.

Bure's most significant environmental impact consists of the indirect environmental effects of our portfolio companies. Our Responsible Ownership and Investment Policy includes guidelines for how Bure and our portfolio companies should work to reduce environmental impact.
