Responsible investment guidelines

In addition to laws and legislation, Achmea aligns itself with several treaties, principles and initiatives that provide valuable frameworks for socially responsible investments. We decided to follow several (international) guidelines and initiatives that provide guidance on how we want to implement our investment policy. In this, we have also taken into account our own focus themes.
