Screening criteria are established by SPOV in collaboration with SPF Beheer. Certain key criteria were established at the start of the ESG policy. Over time these criteria were expanded with other issues that deserve our attention. Criteria, for example, depend upon what is deemed important in our sector, the public transport sector. A clear example is union/collective bargaining rights (exclusion of Walmart).
The screening criteria are reviewed by SPF Beheer at least once a year, at the time that also the entire ESG policy is reviewed. The results of this review are reported to us in a Board meeting. From time to time an extra thorough review is planned together with us. Whenever other (innovative) issues reach us or SPF Beheer throughout the year, the issue is discussed in a meeting with the boards of the funds.
