Ratings & Benchmarks

ESG Ratings

Our objective is to continuously improve our performance and to strive for sustainability leadership in our sector. We see sustainability ratings as tools to promote transparency and trustworthiness towards markets and stakeholders. As an investor, we rely on these ratings as part of our long-term ESG integration approach for proprietary investments, as well as in the responsible investment products offered to our asset management customers.

As we strive to be a sustainability leader in our sector, sustainability ratings and industry benchmarks provide an important opportunity to improve our performance and transparency. We also rely on these ratings to support long-term ESG integration across our proprietary investments and the responsible investment products offered to our asset management customers. We take part in a wide range of external assessment and benchmarking initiatives, including:
