KLP has decided to exclude 16 companies with links to Israeli settlements on the West Bank. The settlements are considered to be in violation of international law. KLP held investments totalling NOK 275 million in the companies at the time of the decision.
Norway’s largest pension fund, KLP (US$80 billion AuM) is selling out of companies that derive their turnover or activity from alcohol and gambling. Pornography is also added to the list although KLP was not invested in such companies.
