We chose to use a combination of screening, integration and/or thematic strategies for meeting our ESG goals. This combination enables us to identify the companies that violate our Fundamental Investment Principles (screening), to include ESG-considerations in our investments (integration). Next to that we focus on the themes climate, water and land. We have an inhouse developed methodology on combining sustainable and financial materiality.
Likewise to our equities approach, we exclude or start engagement with companies that violate our ESG policies. We invest in sustainable activities (for example through green bonds) because we want to actively contribute to the transition to a low carbon economy. Via the ESG-score introduction we have a thematic approach to climate, water and land. We measure and report on results of the first two themes. For the land theme we are currently in the process of developing, integrating and implamaneting a science-based target in combination with developing an international standard on how to track/make calculations. Note that, the ACTIAM ESG Score and its process is applicable for both Fixed Income as well as Listed Equity.
