Sustainable investing in its DNA
ACTIAM delivers investment solutions with the objective to optimise longer-term financial, environmental and social returns. Its vision to sustainable investments is discussed in the Sustainable Investment Policy.
ACTIAM adopts a holistic and forward-thinking approach to all the companies and countries in which it invests. This plays an important role in the risk management of the investments, in stimulating behavioural change and in contributing towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The basis of ACTIAM’s policy is that companies and countries have to comply with our Fundamental Investment Principles. These define the bottom-line of ACTIAM’s investments. Companies and countries not complying with these principles are considered to exhibit unacceptable behaviour.
Secondly, the adaptive capacities of the companies to prepare themselves for the transition risks are assessed against seven Material Sustainability Drivers.
