SI Outlook 2021: From ambition and policy to actual portfolio impact

SI Outlook 2021: From ambition and policy to actual portfolio impact

14-01-2021 | Webinar
What does Robeco expect in the world of sustainable investing in 2021? We remain focused on the two main elements of SI: integrating ESG into the investment process and active ownership. In our latest webinar, Masja Zandbergen outlines her views on the market outlook for SI and sustainable strategies. She believes that the financial sector needs to dive into the deep end as EU regulation and climate change ambitions require better research, data and implementation in portfolios.

Secondly, Peter van der Werf outlines Robeco’s main engagement themes for 2021. Climate change takes center stage as the team engages with banks who are funding high-carbon companies, and also with those fossil fuel users who are lagging behind in the transition to lower-carbon business models. He also outlines engagement plans to address labor rights across several sectors in the post-Covid-19 world, and protecting human rights along supply chains in conflict areas.
