It is the third year in a row that Robeco has achieved the best possible score for all the modules assessed by the UNPRI. The firm’s sustainability specialist, Zurich-based RobecoSAM, also received the A+ grading. 

The A+ score was awarded because of the way Robeco uses environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics and integrates sustainability principles across the entire range of funds. RobecoSAM offers sustainability products and supplies the group’s ESG data using its Corporate Sustainability Assessment and Country Sustainability Risk surveys. 

A Robeco tradition

"We are delighted to have retained the best possible rating from the PRI as it honors everything that we hold dear,” says Edith Siermann, Chief Investment Officer for Fixed Income and coordinator of Sustainable Investing at Robeco. 

“Obtaining the highest possible score for all UNPRI modules seems to be becoming a tradition at Robeco. We have worked very hard to integrate sustainability across most of our products and it’s great to receive recognition for this for the third year in a row.” 

“We firmly believe that integrating sustainability in the investment process leads to better-informed investment decisions, while indirectly making a contribution to a more sustainable world by raising the bar for companies in the way they are dealing with sustainability issues that are relevant for society.” 

The UNPRI is an international network of more than 1,500 investors working together to further the growth of sustainable investing. It has six core principles, led by a commitment to using environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in the investment process. Robeco has been a signatory to the principles since the group’s foundation in 2006.
