Regulators, politicians, shareholders, customers / participants and the public expect and demand more and more from financial institutions when it comes to corporate social responsibility and investment. Financial institutions' ambitions in the field of sustainability also increase due to the intrinsic motivation of the management board or pressure from customers and employees.
What is it?
With our SRI implementation service, we help your organization implement your corporate social responsibility (SRI) policy in order to ultimately achieve your SRI objectives. This can be done through the implementation of SRI tools such as voting at shareholders' meetings, engagement, exclusion, ESG integration, the selection of external managers based on ESG criteria, the selection of ESG data providers, the selection of ESG and low carbon benchmarks, impact investing and reporting on the results achieved by your SRI policy.
The SRI policies of many financial institutions have grown historically and are fragmented. They often started with the exclusion of controversial weapons such as cluster munitions followed by voting at shareholders' meetings and engagement without having an underlying policy. Based on your SRI policy with clear ambitions and objectives, SRI instruments are selected and implemented in order to ultimately achieve your ambitions and objectives.
SRI implementation is intended for pension funds, asset managers, banks, insurers and intermediaries who want to implement their SRI policy, have insufficient in-house knowledge about this or want a second opinion.
- Aligning your SRI instruments with your investment beliefs, objectives, focus themes, resources and any restrictions (due to size and nature of your investments).
