Company shares
Our sustainability research team filters out companies according to a series of sustainability criteria and gets into a dialogue with these companies. The selection process for the investment universe consists of three steps:
1. Sustainable activities
For the investment universe, we select companies that generate over 50 percent of its revenues from sustainable products or services that contribute to a clean planet, to a healthy life or to protect the climate
2. Comparison
Companies that do not offer typical sustainable products or services will be analyzed on its performance on environmental, social and corporate governance. The top 50 percent of firms in a particular sector are eligible for an investment.
3. Exclusion criteria
Additionally all selected companies will be filtered according to strict exclusion criteria.

In practice, this then means that only 22 percent of the analyzed companies are chosen for the investment universe
