Bringing sustainability to emerging markets

Bringing sustainability to emerging markets

Emerging markets equities and sustainable investing are often seen as incompatible. Yet the Robeco Sustainable Emerging Stars strategy brings investors the best of both worlds. The strategy aims to benefit from inefficiencies that drive emerging stocks. It also features a proprietary country allocation framework, as differences between emerging countries can be a key source of alpha.
On top of typical return considerations, we integrate additional criteria to ensure our stars are ‘truly’ sustainable. For instance, we ensure that the portfolio offers a better ESG profile than its reference index. We also strive for significantly lower environmental footprint, in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, water consumption and waste generation, relative to the benchmark.
