WHAT RESPONSABILITY’S THEMATIC INVESTMENT APPROACH IS ABOUT

POSITIONING

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.

ESG: NO HIGH-RISK INVESTMENTS IN THE RESPONSABILITY PORTFOLIO

Roughly 70% of all investments within the responsAbility portfolio score low on ESG risk. 

The remaining 30% of responsAbility’s portfolio is classified as ‘medium’ ESG risk.

No investments classified as «high-risk» within the responsAbility portfolio.
