Socially responsible investing 

We take into account the environment, social aspects and good governance

Socially responsible investing means that when we invest your pension, we take into account the environment, social aspects and good governance. This is also known as ESG (environmental, social, governance). We see socially responsible investing as an integral part of the investment process. This means that SRI is applied in every step of the investment cycle, in every investment decision. The pension fund includes information on ESG factors in all investment decisions. Our objective is to pursue a responsible policy that the participants can also identify with. The fund aims to be transparent about the policy it pursues and the effects of this policy (insofar as directly visible).

Our vision of socially responsible investing

For a pension fund, the investment policy, in addition to the other financial management tools, is crucial for providing a good and affordable pension. Our vision is that socially responsible investment contributes to our long-term objective. For us, socially responsible investment is a function of the primary objectives of the pension fund.
