Through its activities in the field of responsible investment, PGGM provides responsible, stable and good investment results that are consistent with our clients’ pension. These activities are founded on the beliefs that (1) responsible investment pays off by producing a positive risk-return profile; (2) sustainable development results in good and stable returns over the long term; and (3) capital is a driving force for sustainable development.
Responsible investment is in continuous development. The past years, we developed a toolkit that includes instruments such as voting and engagement, and we integrated ESG factors into the investment activities. Responsible investment has entered a new phase in which the focus is on societal impact and our impact on the financial sector.
This overview shows you our activities and accomplishments in 2014.
