Integration in the investment process

Responsible investing is an integral part of APG’s investment policy. We know from experience that factors with regard to the environment, society, shareholder rights and corporate governance (abbreviated to ESG: environmental, social & governance) can have a positive impact on the financial performance of companies in the long-term. That is why our investment decisions are judged on financial criteria as well as on ESG aspects. The integrated approach is reflected in the close cooperation between portfolio managers and sustainability and governance experts, enabling them to find a better balance between return and risk.
