Aegon has signed a letter to G20 governments calling them to not only make good on their commitment to tackle climate change, but to do so as soon as possible.
Aegon was recently selected to participate in the world’s first-ever green residential mortgage-backed security (RMBS). The demand for such bonds is high. Will supply keep up?
In the United Nation's most recent Principles for Responsible Investment survey, Aegon Asset Management in the UK, Kames Capital, received the maximum possible rating, which was awarded to just 15% of signatories.
Aegon has taken the decision to strike coal mining off its investment list, and is further stoking sustainability efforts as part of its strategic objectives.
It is clear that among investors there is a widely-held aspiration for more ‘long-term’ investing: investing that is both rewarding and sustainable for the future.
Commenting on the transition from a fossil-fuel based economy to a more sustainable energy system, Aegon CEO, Alex Wynaendts said, "I believe we're on the right track, but the process needs to be faster."
Following last week’s global climate summit in Paris, where governments adopted the world’s first universal climate change accord, Aegon signed the Paris Pledge for Action, together with more than 500 businesses and investors.
