Describe how your organisation’s philosophy incorporates environmental, social and governance factors, and the link to your business offerings.
BWEquity has many links to ESG topics. Due to its 100% affiliation to LBBW, its sustainability policy is automatically adopted by BWEquity. In the mission statement of BWEquity GmbH the ecological and socially sustainable action is fixed. BWEquity published its first sustainability report in January 2020, covering the years 2018 and 2019. As part of the analysis of closed AIFs, ESG issues are assessed according to a transparent grid at the object, provider and management levels. Depending on the degree of fulfillment, the AIF receives corresponding rating points and achieves a higher rating result. BWEquity is proud that in 2019 it has convinced the first provider to sign the UNPRI as a condition of continued cooperation.
