SG 13. ESG issues in strategic asset allocation

13.1. 貴社組織がシナリオ分析および/またはモデリングを実施するか記述してください。実施する場合、 シナリオ分析について説明してください(資産クラス別、セクター別、戦略的資産配分等)。

25語以内で説明してください 。 In 2019 we got engaged with third party service providers and an Austrian University on ESG solutions for the future and climate-aligned risks and opportunities. We think that E (environment) will have an increasing role in determining which sectors are profitablle to invest in in the future.
25語以内で説明してください 。 VBV has conducted a scenario analysis of climate-related risks and opportunities in 2019, resulting in a sectoral heatmap. Moreover there is an internal project team which evaluates climate risk models in order to integrate this information in the strategic asset allocation process in the nearby future.

13.2. 組織が戦略的な資産配分やセクターまたは地理的な市場間での資産の配分においてESG問題を考慮しているかどうかを記載してください。


13.3. 補足情報 [任意]

So far we categorize our strategic asset allocation in traditional asset classes. ESG issues are taken into account when it comes to the selections of managers and before investments are made.

In practice, we can control/avoid our exposure to some climate-damaging sectors through:

-our SRI investment guidelines

-we are very careful when it comes to invest in small caps and in Emerging Market Debt and Emerging Market Equities, where we have a lower exposure than most of international asset owners.

13.4 CC. 貴社組織が気候関連のリスクおよび機会を管理するためにどのようにシナリオ分析を利用しているかについて(分析がどのように解釈されているか、その結果、将来の計画等)、記述してください。


In 2019 we got engaged with a leading  Austrian University and third party service providers on  climate-related risks and opportunities. We conducted a heat map scenario analysis of climate-related risks and opportunities for our invested securities with assistance from pwc Germany. The scenario analysis tested the resilience of our equity portfolio against a climate-related scenario of 2° Celsius or lower. The 2° Celsius scenario has been based on International Energy Agency with the time horizons 2025 and 2030. The result of the analysis for the time horizon 2025 showed that overall, under a 2° C pathway, the portfolio would be mostly resilient regarding transition risks. Until 2030, the portfolio might become less resilient and the geographic differences more profound. A deep dive into sectors showed that some sectors and sub sectors are more exposed to transition risks.

We acknowledged that most of the climate risk in a typical equity portfolio is very concentrated into fossile fuels.

Since 2016 we have no investment in coal in our portfolio and we are monitoring our holdings in oil & gas to keep them low and reducing them when we see the opportunity to do so.

13.5 CC. この分析をだれが利用するか記述してください。


          SRI investment guidelines: valid for all our AUM.
Some of our external managers are divesting from upstream fossile fuels 
Findings from service providers: internal

13.6 CC. 貴社組織がその投資戦略について、投資期間を超えて、気候関連リスクの影響を評価しているか記述してください。


As severance-pay fund, we have a very long time horizon and we have been evaluating the potential impact of climate-related risks since our foundation and beyond our investment time horizon.

Therefore it is our aim to integrate climate-risk models in the strategic asset allocation and ALM process.

14.4. 排出量リスクの開示を選択した場合、採用している開示方法またはそのフレームワークの中で気候関連のものを挙げてください。

Our reports are written by external parties and analyse our equity portfolio in terms of the carbon emissions and other carbon related characteristics of the underlying portfolio companies. They compare this data to the performance of a relevant respectively chosen market benchmark.  Metrics provide absolute and relative figures for portfolio carbon emissions and intensity measures: the total carbon emission answers the main question “What is my portfolio’s total carbon footprint?” as it measures the carbon footprint of a portfolio taking scope 1-2 emissions into account. The relative carbon footprint is a normalized measure of a portfolio’s contribution and is defined as the total carbon emissions of the portfolio per million EUR invested. It enables comparisons with a benchmark, between multiple portfolios, over time and regardless of portfolio size. Carbon intensity is expressed as the total carbon emissions per million EUR of revenue. It therefore measures the carbon efficiency of a portfolio per unit of output.

Together with PWC Germany we did a scenario anlysis:

• Two portfolios were analysed for transition risks in a 2°C global warming world (IEA), with
~1600 corporate titles (MSCI Portfolio) and ~400 titles VBV test portfolio. ~50% for MSCI and
~60% for VBV test of the overall titles in sectors that potentially are more exposed to climate related
risks and opportunities
• Risk position: Both portfolios would experience growth in a 2°C , the weighted MSCI
portfolio slightly higher (~1% p.a.)
• Portfolio management: However, an unweighted view shows material potential for
active portfolio management, leveraging the potential in transportation and agriculture, and
managing risks in the energy as well as materials and buildings sectors
• Company management: For active portfolio management, it is paramount to look into
sub-sectors and regional split
• Process integration and reporting: As the financial impacts result from fundamental
market, price, technology and competitive changes, the analysis can easily be integrated
into the existing company analysis and risk management, and provides the basis for the
TCFD integration roadmap and reporting as well as for strategy guidance

14.8 CC. 気候関連のリスクが全体のリスク管理に組み込まれているかどうか記述してください。また、気候関連リスクを特定、評価、管理するために利用されたリスク管理プロセスについて説明してください。


We make use of the definitions of climate risks given by Carbon Tracker and IEA. Climate risk is part of our risk classification framework, as it has been ranked by our shareholders as one of the most important concern for our business. We took actions by actively investing into climate-friendly investment opportunities and by eliminating companies deriving more than 5% of their revenues from coal from our investment universe. We do consider existing and regulatory requirements related to climate change.

As VBV is working on fully integrating climate-related risks into risk management going forward, an internal project, with members from the risk management and the asset management department, has already been started in 2019.
