To be considered “sustainable”, RI funds cover a range of approaches and use various strategies.

Responsible Investment Strategies

Environmental, social, and governance practices are considered and integrated in the investment process


Active Ownership

Using shareholder rights to influence corporate behaviour


Exclusions and Screening

Companies are evaluated based on positive and negative screening criteria (e.g. social responsibility, tobacco industry)

Thematic and Impact

Investments are focused on a specific theme or made with the intention to generate positive social and environmental change
