In contracts with external managers, the UNPRI and the Global Compact are promoted. If a manager does not subscribe to one of these documents we ask them why not and whether they want to consider it. We have heard from several managers that did not subscribe yet that more and more funds are asking them about this and that they are seriously considering subscription. We also question them about their responsible investment policy. This is a starting point for a discussion on points/ areas for improvement.
From time to time we speak about our internally managed equity portfolio at events, conferences or in (news) magazines. Since RI is an integral part of the portfolio, this is also taken into account in these events or texts. This shows other investors how financial choices and RI can go hand in hand. Also we have been interviewed for articles on funds in our impact investing portfolio.
