This data is compiled by Mindful Money from the fund information and portfolios that each fund has filed with the Disclose register to 30th Sept. 2022 and Mindful Money analysis of funds within those portfolios. The list of companies of concern has been drawn from ratings agencies and public sources, including the Norwegian Sovereign Fund, NZ Super Fund, Sustainalytics and research organisations.
