What is sustainable investment?

Sustainable and responsible investment (”SRI”) is a long-term oriented investment approach which integrates ESG factors in the research, analysis and selection process of securities within an investment portfolio. 

It combines fundamental analysis and engagement with an evaluation of ESG factors in order to better capture long-term returns for investors, and to benefit society by influencing the behaviour of companies. 

Our policy priorities

It is actively contributing to the EU sustainable finance agenda, acting as an privilege interlocutor of Public Institutions, practitioners, and NGOs. Our broad constituency ensures that various sensitivities, points of views and expertise are reflected in our policy recommendations and positions.
