first_imgThe latest move follows KLP’s announcement in May that it was taking its tolerance threshold for coal as a component of businesses it would invest in to the minimum practical level of 5%.At the time the pension fund said this threshold was necessary as it was hard to get accurate information from companies on all revenue below this level.The coal sands move announced today has involved KLP excluding four Canadian companies and one Russian firm from its investments. Norway’s NOK692bn (€69bn) municipal pension fund Kommunal Landspensjonskasse (KLP) and its funds subsidiary KLP Funds are to sell the shares and bonds of five companies with oil sands activities as the group takes more climate-orientated action.Sverre Thornes, KLP’s chief executive, said: “By going coal and oil sands free, we are sending a strong message on the urgency of shifting from fossil to renewable energy.”KLP said it has decided to lower its tolerance threshold for investing in companies involved in oil sands activities, and now firms with more than 5% of their business in this fossil-fuel area will be excluded from its portfolios.This threshold had already been lowered to 30% back in December 2017.

first_imgFrank Lampard’s tenure as Chelsea manager got off to an awful start with a 4-0 humbling against Manchester United at Old Trafford.Despite the scoreline, Chelsea were on top for large amounts of the game but were picked off by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.Solskjaer will be first to admit the display was far from perfect, but this win was just the tonic after a summer of discontent.Chelsea had started the brighter on Sunday and Tammy Abraham and Emerson Palmieri efforts off the woodwork bookended an entertaining opening period in which Rashford’s spot-kick was the difference.Lampard’s new-look side continued to show promise as the second half got under way, only for United to show a ruthless edge sorely lacking in recent seasons.Harry Maguire, this week made the most expensive defender in history, won the ball, starting a move that ended with Martial celebrating the return of his number nine jersey by turning in an Andreas Pereira cross.Chelsea were punch-drunk and Paul Pogba put a summer of speculation behind him by superbly putting in Rashford to fire home.New boy James came off the bench to score a deflected effort in front of the Stretford End following more fine work by Pogba and, if that was not enough, United kept a clean sheet.Solskjaer named the youngest starting line-up seen in the Premier League this weekend, while Chelsea’s side also had an accent on youth as Mason Mount and Abraham started.The decision to select the latter looked bold given Olivier Giroud was on the bench, yet four minutes in the academy graduate turned smartly and unleashed a fierce shot that smacked the far post.Pedro struck wide and Cesar Azpilicueta sent over a threatening cross during a fine Chelsea start, with Mount trying his luck from distance as the away fans chanted, ‘Just like London, your city is blue’.Lampard’s side were showing potential but United’s attacking options were unsettling. A high press forced Kurt Zouma into an early mistake that Martial should have done better with and things soon got worse for the Chelsea man.Referee Anthony Taylor allowed play to continue after a tactical foul during a United break, which ended with Rashford being fouled by the Frenchman in the box.The decision was rubber-stamped by a VAR check and Rashford followed a stuttered run-up with an unerring finish.United looked to kick on after the opener but Martial’s radar, as was some of his decision-making – something that allowed Ross Barkley, who earlier went close, to test captain David De Gea.Aaron Wan-Bissaka was impressing but he was involved in the defensive confusion that led to Emerson striking the bar late in the first half.Chelsea continued in the ascendancy after the break, with Pedro seeing an effort deflect over and Emerson stinging the palms.An overzealous Abraham challenge on Scott McTominay remained a yellow card after a VAR review against a rattled United side, who were creating precious little.However, a tackle by Maguire on the edge of his own box started a move that would bring about a 65th-minute goal.Solskjaer’s side continued to push after the initial break fizzled out, with Pereira making space for himself and sending in a cross that Martial was able to bundle home.Old Trafford erupted, just as it would again two minutes later. Pogba may have been in his own half but he spotted Rashford’s run, with the forward keeping his cool after being picked out to slot home.The feel-good factor even saw divisive former manager Jose Mourinho serenaded, but soon Solskjaer’s name was filling the air.Pogba burst forwards with pace and power before feeding the ball to James, whose effort clipped Emerson and beat Kepa Arrizabalaga to seal a 4-0 triumph.
