Environment, Social, Governance

When we talk about ESG, we are referring to our three core themes, which form the focus of our sustainable funds. ESG stands for Environment, Social and Governance. These three criteria are taken into account when selecting our funds and integrated into the investment process. Companies with a high ESG risk are excluded.




ESGenius® – 
the centrepiece of our sustainability approach

The ESG analysis using our ESGenius® rating model is the centrepiece of our sustainability approach. The ESGenius® score is used to identify either those companies that have too high ESG risk or those that are not among the most sustainable companies in each sector.

It should be noted that this sustainable orientation can exclude certain companies from the investable universe.

Erste AM ESGenius® Score

The analysis focuses on the relevant ESG risks, which can be assessed using statistical analysis. Based on this data, Erste AM's Responsible Investment Team creates the proprietary Erste AM ESGenius® Score. Each company receives a sustainability rating ranging from 0 to 100.
