ACTIAM set focus themes based on medium- to long-term trends and the possible material impact for our investments. We recognize that the world population is growing, prosperity is rising, and the planetary boundaries are increasingly reached or passed. This puts pressure on our natural resources and on the way that we produce and consume. For this reason, ACTIAM chose Climate, Water and Land as focus themes for its responsible investment approach.
Although some effects can already be identified, we expect climate-related financial impacts to happen particularly on the medium to long term. The coming years will be crucial if we want to achieve the targets of the Paris Agreement and limit global warming to maximal 2 degrees Celsius.
