Investing in solutions

For financial and social returns

Via investing in solutions we want to achieve good financial returns as well as tangible impact on a sustainable world. Our mission is to contribute to a valuable future for the pension participants of our clients. We believe a good pension is worth more in a better world. For our clients, we invest in solutions in the areas of climate and environment, water, food and health.

By investing in solutions for these social challenges, we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from the United Nations. Here you can read about the taxonomies we have developed together with APG, to determine whether an investment contributes to a SDG. In order to achieve targeted impact, we invest in four themes within these 17 goals that are important to our clients: climate and environment, water, food and healthcare. An overview of investing in solutions in 2018 can be found in our Responsible Investment annual Report. For more information about responsible investment, visit the Responsible Investment web page.
