To Erste Asset Management, sustainable investments do not only mean the application of ethical beliefs, but to achieve social and ecological added value. To make this added value quantifiable, we have developed a number of sustainability indicators which compare the effects of sustainable investments with traditional indices.
The measuring results, in turn, affect investment decisions. The aim is to continuously improve the positive impact of our actions.
Make environmental benefits quantifiable
In cooperation with an external partner, we developed a methodology for the WWF STOCK ENVIRONMENT to illustrate the contribution to environmental protection made by companies in the environmental equities fund every year (Note: the contribution by the different companies is shown as total rather than as weighted by the respective portion invested in the fund).
