Our vision on responsible investing
We invest in approximately 3,500 companies worldwide for our clients. With invested assets of approximately EUR 25 billion, we can contribute to a better future for current and future generations. We believe that sustainability and good returns reinforce each other and that taking ESG aspects into account in investment choices yields more for now and in the future. A company that takes social developments into account is expected to perform better than a company that does not take them into account. That is why responsible investment is an integral part of our investment policy.
UN Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consist of 17 sustainability goals that have been agreed by the countries that are members of the United Nations, including the Netherlands. The SDGs aim for a positive impact on society and the environment and contribute to the focus of our ESG policy. To identify ESG risks and opportunities, we work with two sustainability themes and corresponding SDGs. We attach extra importance to the themes of Climate and Economy, production and consumption. In our engagement policy, we emphasize these five SDGs.
