Robeco offers investment products and services to private, institutional and retail investors. Our product range encompasses equity and fixed-income investments, money-market funds and alternative investments, including private equity, and structured products. Robeco uses 'Sustainability Investing' as an official term for all sustainability related practices, this refers to the same concepts embodied in the term 'Responsible Investing' which is often used in the investment industry. At Robeco, sustainability is considered as one of the key long term value drivers which leads to better-informed investment decisions.

Robeco offers a wide range of mutual funds. ESG factors are integrated in all of its mainstream equity and bond products. The company works on finding relevant ways to integrate ESG issues into the investment process. As investment strategies vary between individual portfolios, the amount and type of ESG integration also varies. Robeco is one of the few asset managers who systematically integrates ESG factors into investments in government bonds.

Robeco works closely together with our sister company RobecoSAM. Both organizations are part of the same holding company. RobecoSAM has a strong track record in offering resource efficiency thematic strategies and products.

Other pillars of Robeco's sustainability investing approach include Sustainability Investing Research (complementing Robeco's mainstream research capabilities) and Governance & Active Ownership (providing voting, engagement, and exclusion services). To manage its own sustainability footprint, Robeco has adopted a corporate responsibility policy that includes a donation and charity program, and ensures inclusion of sustainability criteria in its procurement practices and management of its carbon footprint.

The questions in this questionnaire are answered based on the commonalities between Robeco's different investment groups and their different investment approaches. Examples of these approaches will be provided, where relevant, to illustrate the diversity in its approach.
