Sustainable investing is not a simple overlay, but should be structurally embedded in all facets of portfolio building. From identifying good and bad practices through research to measuring the impact with performance attribution. In inspiring videos we will discuss engagement cases with investee companies, and clients from Asia, South Africa and Europe will share best practices in achieving their ESG beliefs.

Robeco investment specialists explain every step of the ESG integration journey. Erika van der Merwe moderates the discussion between Helga Birgden of Mercer and Kenneth Robertson of Robeco on the consultant perspective and future developments of each step, including ‘hot topics’ such as carbon reduction. Finally, Fiona Reynolds of the Principles for Responsible Investment outlines the growing demand for sustainable investing and elaborates on her outlook on imminent developments in sustainable investing.
