Robeco and RobecoSAM Awarded Highest Scores In Latest United Nations PRI Assessment
  • They have been awarded A+ scores by the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment
  • Of the 681 investment managers that are signatories of the UNPRI, only 16% received A+ scores for their overarching approach
  • "RobecoSAM has shaped the Sustainability Investing landscape over the past 20 years and these strong results reflect our unwavering conviction that financial analysis without ESG integration is incomplete", said Michael Baldinger, CEO of RobecoSAM

Robeco Group and RobecoSAM have announced that they have been awarded A+ scores by the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) for their overarching approach to responsible investment. Of the 681 investment managers that are signatories of the UNPRI, only 16% received A+ scores for their overarching approach. Robeco has been a signatory of the UNPRI since 2006, RobecoSAM since 2007.

Roderick Munsters, CEO of Robeco: “I am delighted that Robeco has achieved A+ scores for all the different modules assessed by the UN PRI. It is testimony to our approach to Sustainability Investing; we were one of the first larger asset managers to make Sustainability Investing a strategic priority over a decade ago, and today Sustainability Investing is one of the strategic pillars of our 2014-2018 strategy. The high scores we have been awarded for all the modules confirm our leadership in Sustainability Investing across all asset classes. I’m convinced that the importance of sustainability investing will continue to increase and that our expertise in this area will continue to benefit our clients and us.”

Michael Baldinger, CEO of RobecoSAM: “We are proud to have been awarded such outstanding scores by the UN PRI. RobecoSAM has shaped the Sustainability Investing landscape over the past 20 years and these strong results reflect our unwavering conviction that financial analysis without ESG integration is incomplete. Our focus over the last two decades has helped us develop A+-rated knowledge, tools and best practices which are of benefit to both current and future clients. "

Although RobecoSAM's scores are partly reflected in Robeco’s group score, the company was also assessed separately since it is a UN PRI signatory in its own right.
