IMPACT AND ESG
responsAbility is committed to targeted and measurable impact. Therefore, our funds are aligned with the requirements of the Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector (SFDR), and we continuously strive to transparently communicate how we engage with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards and how we use targeted impact strategies in order to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
WHAT RESPONSABILITY’S THEMATIC INVESTMENT APPROACH IS ABOUT
When responsAbility kicked off development investments in 2003, the objective was to create development impact while unlocking attractive new markets for investors. For this we chose a thematic approach, focusing on three sectors.
HOW ESG & IMPACT ADD UP IN ONE EQUATION
For responsAbility the application of ESG criteria is only one selection criteria within the investment process. For the portfolio, responsAbility targets high impact companies defined by a set of measurable impact themes. Careful ESG assessment and monitoring then guarantees no unforeseen risks arise in the areas of environment, social and governance.
