Sustainability: The right ESG data for your portfolio and the planet 

The increasing importance of sustainable investing (SI) brings its own challenges, but great opportunities as well. We capture your beliefs and develop solutions and products on this basis that offer you a range of implementation options. 

At Quoniam, sustainability begins in house. We have set ourselves goals for sustainability and our guidelines for responsible investment are based on them. We are also guided by national and international standards. 

Sustainable Investing committee and team 

Cross-team expertise 

The SI committee reviews and updates our SI strategy and all matters relating to screening, data quality, integration and engagement. It also reviews compliance with our Responsible Investment Guidelines. 

“Investors with sustainability preferences not only want to achieve alpha, but also want their portfolio to reflect their sustainability related investment objectives. We address this through a portfolio construction process that simultaneously integrates and optimises factor-based alpha forecasts and ESG target values on our investment platform.”
Claudia Röring, Head of Product Management; Member of the SI Committee

The SI committee is supported by experts from the Product Management, Governance & Business Advisory, Client Relations, Product Communications and Marketing departments. Together, they form the SI team, which plans and realises the implementation of ESG strategies and regulatory requirements.  

As part of the Union Investment Group, we also work closely with Union Investment’s ESG team in the areas of engagement and proxy voting, and regularly exchange views on the topics of EU regulations, data providers, ESG strategies and sustainability risks.
