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.”
