Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.
Sustainability has been an important and integral element of our corporate culture for decades. As such, beside economic criteria, ecological and social aspects were part of our investment decision process for a long time. As a sustainable investor we want to contribute to the sustainable development and be an active member of the investment community in this area. We have implemented general screens (controversial weapons, UN Global Compact) and implement voting for all investment strategies . Furthermore, our dedicated sustainability approach has additional exclusion and best-in-class criteria. Moreover, in 2020 we will implement ESG-integration for all conventional investment strategies.
Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]
