Sustainability beyond ESG scores (NN Investment Partners)

As ESG investing becomes more popular so does alternative ESG data. Opinions about sustainability vary among data providers and correlation appears low.

What defines a sustainable business model and does the ultimate sustainability truth actually exist? Alex Zuiderwijk, senior portfolio manager Sustainable Equity will share his views on two important issues. The importance to have a value chain focussed research approach. In addition variation in materiality among factors and also the positive change of ESG ratings seem more relevant than looking at absolute ESG policy factors alone.

Using a common sense approach avoiding clear ESG risks via a comprehensive qualitative and quantitative ESG and financial assessment of a business model, is a proven path that the NN IP team has successfully implemented while outperforming the broader equity market.
