Investing with impact – highlights 2015
Energy and Climate
Renewable energy projects financed by us generated green energy equivalent to the needs of 490,000 European households, avoiding over 0.9 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.
In total, we provided over EUR 700 million of finance to 100 up-and-coming and well-established microfinance institutions and banks in Latin America, Asia and Africa. These institutions provide loans to 15 million low-income people, of whom 80% are women and 41% live in rural areas.
Sustainable trade finance
In total over EUR 30 million was disbursed to 33 cooperative and private exporters, producing 11 different agricultural products in 16 countries, including coffee, cotton, cocoa, olive oil, cashew nuts and sesame.
Arts and Culture
In Arts and Culture, we managed EUR 97 million in assets, financing projects that reached 2.9 million visitors and providing affordable facilities to 2,800 artists.
Sustainable Real Estate
In this sector, we increased the quality and sustainability of the built environment through the management of sustainable buildings that emit 40% less CO2 than the average building.
Engaging listed companies
We provide individuals and institutions with the opportunity to invest in listed companies that meet our extremely strict environmental, social and governance criteria. Through these funds, investors become part of a movement to put pressure on the world’s largest corporations to adopt more sustainable practices. To do this, we engaged 661 times with 280 companies worldwide in 2015.
Our SRI funds managed EUR 1.3 billion in assets, investing exclusively in ‘best in class’ and pioneering listed companies worldwide and sovereign bonds in Europe.
