Our ESG Screening, ACTIAM ESG score processes and footprinting calculations are defined as an ACTIAM key process. Hereby, there are key risk controls defined, such as on the screening and the decision making by the ACTIAM ESG Committee meetings, as well as the model for calculating the water footprint of the funds. These controls are implemented and monitored in the risk system and are under assurance of the external auditor. Our internal risk department continuously monitors the controls and, twice a year, the external auditor conducts its verification process.
Also, the screening of the portfolios and benchmarks plus the decision making process on exclusions and engagements are processes audited. The outcomes are listed in our annual reports which are themselves signed off by the accountant.
Finally, we have a key control defined for voting. And these figures are also added to the annual report.
