Active is: Investing for financial and social outcomes
Chief Sustainability Officer Beatrix Anton-Groenemeyer discusses the importance of Sustainable Investing at Allianz Global Investors and explains the various approaches investors can adopt: “Sustainability is an integral part of what we do. It’s in our DNA.”
What is Sustainable Investing?
At Allianz Global Investors, we define Sustainable Investing as a broad investment category that incorporates Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors into investment decisions as a means to better manage risk and potentially enhance long-term returns. With two decades of experience in Sustainable Investing, we believe that ESG factors represent a true evolution of the investment playbook and are now an indispensable tool for helping investors aim for both better financial and social outcomes.
As a broad category, Sustainable Investing covers a number of investment strategies, each with distinct traits that affect how portfolios are constructed, the degree to which philosophical views are expressed, and the extent of social impact. We see Sustainable Investing as falling mainly into three wide-ranging groups: Integrated ESG, Sustainable and Responsible Investing (SRI), as well as Sustainable Development and Impact Investing.
