Together with UBS Asset Management, City University of New York and Harvard University we are developing a new methodology for measuring impact, that enables us to compare companies on impact per euro invested. IPE (Investment & Pensions Europe) wrote about the developing of the new method.
PGGM reconnects investments to real world economic, social and environmental needs and aspirations. Our vision: in five to ten years it will be standard practice to characterise all our investments by their effects on society. IPE (Investment & Pensions Europe) published a commentary about the why, what and how.
PGGM has mapped the investment portfolio by its effects on people and planet. A learning experience, according to Piet Klop and Cedric Scholl.
Investments in solutions to water scarcity can be made worldwide, far away, and close to home, says Piet Klop.
PGGM and other Dutch investors and companies propose indicators to measure the impact of their assets to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Impact investing needs robust measurement of the positive impact we want to make, explains Piet Klop to IPE.
PGGM is investing in the first of a series of French green government bonds. Green bonds offer the scale required to finance the transition to a clean energy provision.
