Environmental and social issues play an increasingly important role in today’s business. On top, the impact of poor corporate governance practices on shareholder value has lifted issues such as transparency, board structure, shareholder rights, business ethics, risk management and executive compensation to the top of the investor agenda.
We strongly believe that responsible investing does not contradict creation of superior returns and shareholder value for our investors. To the contrary, we believe that sustainable shareholder value and growth can only be created by respecting and acknowledging the relevance of environmental and social factors.
