  • MainFirst is committed to supporting the sustainability developments by complying with the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment (UNPRI).
  • We systematically integrate ESG criteria into our investment process based on the external and independent data provider Sustainalytics.
  • We actively integrate ESG criteria into our investment analysis and decision-making process.
  • We will actively discuss and address ESG topics as well as potential issues with companies where we are invested.

 

Product Involvement

We exclude controversial weapons.

 

ESG Risk Scores

We consider ESG risk scores on a case by case method and in the context of the respective benchmark and the investment universe. A diligent evaluation of the results is undertaken, especially in the event of unfavourable risk scores or substantial deviation from the peer group.

 

Global Standards

We  are committed to supporting the adoption of sustainable and socially responsible policies in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Companies or states that deliberately violate them have to take a broader and more rigorous analysis.

 

Controversies

A holistic view of the risk spectrum is carried out, with a profound evaluation of companies/states with high risk ratings.
