Impact on investment decision or performance

The inclusion policy applies both to Listed Equity and Fixed Income Corporates. In 2019, we have continued with the roll-out of the Inclusion Policy. The investable universe contains around 10,000 companies at a given point in time. At year end, the finalised classifications of approximately 7,700 companies were fully implemented in portfolios, and more than 2,000 new companies were assigned preliminary classifications under the Inclusion Policy.

ESG factor and explanation

Carbon footprint

ESG incorporation strategy applied Integration

Impact on investment decision or performance

We measure the carbon footprint of our Listed Equity portfolio, and our clients have established a target to reduce the footprint by 25% in 2020 (base year is 2015). As a result, we take carbon emissions of companies into account in the investment process, and the carbon footprint has remained significantly below the baseline level. The target of 25% was exceeded and the carbon footprint of the equity portfolio showed a reduction of 30% at year end compared to the 2015 baseline.
