Climate change and biodiversity take center stage in eventful year for SI


The events of 2021 showed that sustainable investment and active ownership has never been more important. The EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) came into effect, as Covid-19 still raged worldwide and the threat of climate change was laid bare with COP26 and another alarming report from the IPCC. All these trends are addressed in our 2021 Stewardship Report highlighting how Robeco dealt with these and other SI issues last year.
