An ongoing development process
The creation of sustainable structures is subject to an ongoing development process. Raiffeisen Capital Management also considers this fact for the issuers in which it invests. A black and white view of things is not particularly useful – with the exception of clearly defined exclusion criteria – if one wishes to promote sustainability. Raiffeisen Capital Management therefore applies an integrated sustainability approach that is based on the following three levels: 1) Avoid, 2) Support, and 3) Influence.
*) The Raiffeisen Kapitalanlage-Gesellschaft m.b.H. continually analyses companies and countries with the help of internal and external research providers. Together with an overall ESG assessment including an ESG risk assessment, the results of the sustainability research are converted into the so-called Raiffeisen ESG Indicator, which is based on a scale of 0 to 100. The assessment is made in consideration of the company’s respective branch of business.
