Our contribution to sustainable finance

Metzler Asset Management offers ESG reporting on Master-KVGs, institutional investment funds and retail funds on the basis of key performance indicators (KPIs) and broader sustainable development approaches, greenhouse gas emissions, serious violations of international standards and conventions, and dialogue and the exercising of voting rights in which additional ESG transparency requirements taken from the CSR Directive Implementation Act, the IORPs II Directive, the Shareholders’ Rights Directive or the EU’s Disclosure Regulation are taken into account (cf. https://www.metzler.com/downloads/Metzler/Download- Dokumente_MAM/Nachhaltigkeit/PK_ESG-Reporting_aus_PI_17A2_RZ_web.pdf).
