Robeco has published its 2021 Sustainability Report, a detailed report on how it integrates sustainability into its investments and own operations, how it serves clients with sustainable investment solutions and about the way in which Robeco fulfills its active ownership activities.
The sustainability report also outlines the actions taken to meet SFDR requirements and the launch of its net-zero targets to decarbonize portfolios and reduce operational emissions. Robeco’s sustainable investing strategy is a key building block in its 2021-2025 strategy. In 2021, Robeco surpassed EUR 200 billion in AuM, with EUR 389 billion under engagement. It was also another year dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic, impacting employees, clients and investments.

Karin van Baardwijk, CEO Robeco: “I would like to encourage our stakeholders to read this sustainability report and find out more about our approach to sustainability and the impact we have through our investments. In addition we aim to live up to the same standards to which we hold others, hence we also work to integrate sustainability into our own business operations.
“This report covers both aspects. With our core business, being an asset manager, we don’t just have an opportunity but also a responsibility to drive innovation and be a catalyst for change. We work together, we engage with companies to improve their sustainability performance and we allocate capital to the right companies – this is how we make a difference and play our part.”
