and ESG investments
ESG investments are investments in companies selected based on environmental, social, and good governance criteria. However, Europe is raising the bar for sustainable investments: by applying strict rules and objectives to selecting companies that carry out economic activities with a positive impact on society and the world. Sustainable investment thus goes a step further than ESG investment.


Criteria based on three pillars:
  • Environmental or Environment (E)
  • Social (S)
  • Good Governance (G)

Sustainable products

and activities
Sustainable investments have an explicit objective, which can be environmental and social. Examples are the use of renewable energy, the reduction of carbon emissions, the promotion of the circular economy, the fight against inequality, the promotion of labor relations, or the investment in human capital.

Your sustainability preferences shape the future

Would you like to place greater emphasis on investments that contribute to environmental, social and sustainability objectives?

Then it's a good thing that your investment profile, in which we assess your risk appetite or aversion and your investment objectives, is supplemented by a questionnaire that aims to capture your sustainability preferences.

The changes in the MiFID II regulation are intended to better link financial instruments to your sustainability preferences in portfolio management or investment advice, and to allow you as an investor to develop your knowledge of existing sustainable products and instruments.
