Event Details

Investing using Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors is increasingly going mainstream. It is based on the assumption that ESG factors have financial relevance. The idea that investors who integrate corporate ESG risks can improve returns is now rapidly spreading across capital markets on all continents.


The Netherlands has been a driving force behind this trend and Robeco Asset Management and APG are leading actors with 20+ years of experience in applying ESG principles to the investment world.


Hear from our experts how ESG is a value driver of your investments, how to apply it in Asia, what are pitfalls and how it will develop.
