“Since our founding days, we have believed strongly that our primary purpose as a company is to positively impact humanity,” said Michael Ramirez, Executive Vice President of People, Places, and Administration. “Whether we’re being good stewards of the environment, giving back to the community, or fostering a culture where inclusiveness can thrive, we are persistent in our efforts to create a better world.”
RobecoSAM’s Corporate Sustainability Assessment measures financially material factors that impact a company’s core business value drivers. Factors including a company’s ability to innovate, attract and retain talent, and increase operational eco-efficiency are weighted heavily because of the impact on a company’s competitive position and long-term financial performance. The Sustainability Yearbook is the world’s most comprehensive publication on corporate sustainability and has grown to become one of the leading reference guides for investors seeking out innovative approaches to integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into their portfolios.
