As an asset manager focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing, we believe that certain products and business practices are not compatible with sustainable investment strategies. Therefore, our investment universe excludes companies that are involved in any of the following activities: 


Controversial behavior 

In addition, companies whose activities have breached any of the UN Global Compact Principles will be excluded from our universe if they are unable or unwilling to change their behavior following a period of enhanced engagement.

For additional details, please refer to the RobecoSAM Exclusion Policy.

Customized exclusions 

For investors who wish to further align their investments with their ethical convictions, we apply a range of additional customized exclusions to segregated mandates.
