Describe how you measure, track or otherwise demonstrate your value on investment research activities.
We are in the process of developing a system to measure our impact. At present, we derive satisfaction and accomplishment from actions of banks and companies when they change their behavior. The reason of this change is collective and shared by various parties like NGOs, governments, and investors. We take pride in being a part of this call for change and contributing in our modest way through profound research that is the basis of the call for action from these organisations. For example, ING withdrew from Dacota Access Pipeline given the pressure from community, NGOs, and other stakeholders. It is also one of the banks under research within the projects of Fair Finance Guide Netherlands. Seeing the bank improving its risk management processes to exclude such controversial projects gives us motivation to continue.
