          Internal Audit Report PRI Assessment 2020

The process of creating the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) Transparency Reports 2019 for both Robeco and RobecoSAM effectively ensures the completeness and accuracy of reported information and timeliness of reporting. This year, the reporting processes of Robeco and RobecoSAM have been aligned, and as a result the review of all reporting modules in both UN PRI Reports for Robeco and RobecoSAM was performed by the Active Ownership (AO) team and subsequently audited by Internal Audit. We noted that the mutual reporting process was very well structured and aligned. The PRI Reporting Framework process manual sufficiently defines and assigns responsibilities regarding registration, filing and review tasks. However, this manual will be enhanced with regard to the specification of required source documentation, since these requirements were not yet clear for the RobecoSAM content providers. The AO team appropriately managed the process and documented the progress of the reporting process. Process and data owners timely provided the content of the reported information, which was subsequently thoroughly reviewed by the AO analysts, the Head of ESG Integration, the Head of AO and the Deputy Head of Investments. During this review, the accuracy and completeness of answers given were appropriately challenged and checked using the related source documentation. All review comments have been appropriately addressed in the final UN PRI Transparency Report 2019. Finally, we verified that the content of the final reporting modules was completely, accurately and timely submitted in the PRI web application on 30 March 2020 (deadline: 31 March 2020).
