EUROFIMA strengthens its commitment as a sustainable and responsible asset owner
Since the official signature of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment in January 2020, EUROFIMA has made significant efforts to foster its presence as a sustainable and responsible asset owner. EUROFIMA’s strict integration of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations into its investment decision process is based on two major pillars. Firstly, all investments must fulfil the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). Secondly, ESG risks for all investments are assessed based on external data provided by Sustainalytics. EUROFIMA confirms that all holdings comply with the UNGC and that no position is rated severe in ESG risk terms. Moreover, the weighted-average ESG risk rating of all investments is confirmed as low.
The initiative of integrating ESG considerations is an important part of EUROFIMA’s commitment to sustainability. Sustainability is at the core of EUROFIMA as an organization through its non-profit mission to support the development of public passenger rail transportation in Europe, its funding model as a frequent Green bond issuer in the capital markets and ultimately as a sustainable and responsible asset owner. All information about EUROFIMA’s efforts can be found in the Sustainability section of our webpage. Moreover, the Treasury & Asset Management unit publishes quarterly a Summary of its Treasury Strategy with a focus on the portfolio overview and key risk metrics.
