Continued improvement of the Fund's sustainability performance
At Bouwinvest, we believe that you cannot ensure long-term successful investments without taking the needs of society into account, as the two are inextricably linked. To make sure we are making the maximum effort to ensure healthy societal and financial returns, we monitor our investment and operational performance using the internationally accepted GRESB benchmark.
We believe an above-average sustainability rating, a GRESB 5-star rating, makes the Fund is highly sustainable and actively contributes to meeting the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities.
The Fund remained in the leading group of sustainable investment funds by retaining its GRESB 5-star rating, which puts the Fund among the 20% best-performing funds globally. The Fund improved its overall score by two points to a total of 88.
The Fund is currently investigating how to improve its score in the coming years to remain in the leading group. The measures we are looking at include automatically monitoring environmental data to gain more insight into the environmental footprint of the Fund’s assets.
