Robeco voted European Responsible Private Equity Investor of the Year
Robeco Private Equity has been awarded the top prize for responsible private equity investing in Europe at the 2010 Private Equity International Awards.
Robeco Private Equity has been awarded the Responsible Investor of the Year in Europe in the 2010 Private Equity International Awards. These are the only awards that are voted for by the global private-equity industry itself. Robeco came ahead of AlpInvest Partners and Morgan Stanley, which were in second and third places respectively. Robeco made its first commitment to responsible and clean-technology focused private-equity funds as early as 2003. In addition, Robeco was a co-author of the UN PRI Guidelines for implementing an environment, social and governance (ESG) framework in private equity.
Andrew Musters, Robeco’s Global Head of Private Equity, said: “As a pioneer in the field of merging ESG factors and private equity, we are proud to receive this recognition by the private-equity community. Our success is based on a strong foundation in this field at Rabobank, Robeco and SAM.”
