How is an ESG strategy created?

Your ESG strategy is a combination of your individual understanding of sustainability, the expectations of your stakeholder and regulatory requirements. Deriving a suitable strategy from this does not work by chance, which is why we support you throughout all phases:

  1. Vision: What is your objective? What level of ambition do you want to achieve?
  2. Portfolio analysis: What is the target/actual comparison of the portfolio? Where are ESG risks?
  3. Workshop: Which ESG criteria are actually important? What do your stakeholders want?
  4. Strategy: Together we define your sustainable investment strategy!

Which ESG standards are important?

The market for sustainable investments offers numerous orientation aids, guidelines and legal standards that can become part of an ESG strategy. But which ones are relevant for you? We navigate you safely through the wide range of ESG standards:

  • Common ethical and sustainable investment strategies (e.g. exclusions, norms-based screening, ESG integration, best-in-class, impact investments)
  • International norms and standards (UN Global Compact, SDGs, Paris climate goals)
  • SRI labels (e.g., FNG label, Austrian Ecolabel)
  • Market standards (e.g. ecclesiastical guidelines, financial association concept)
  • Regulatory standards (e.g. SFDR Article 8 and 9, EU Taxonomy, BaFin Directive)
  • Best practice examples and benchmarks
