We track the Sustainable Progress of our investments and donations by screening them on ESG and impact. All our investments and donations receive a comprehensive screening resulting in a Progress score on a scale of 2 to 10, as well as an inventory of possible next steps to improve that score. We receive this score both for VP Capital and for our investments and donations, on specific company level.
Our investments and donations are divided across eight investment/donation domains: agrifood, energy, smart industry, media, textiles, health, real estate and water. Key challenges that play a role in the area of sustainability have been determined for each domain. Finally, for each domain, solutions have been identified that contribute to solving the challenges and which can be invested in or donated to.
We consciously invest increasingly in impact companies, because they contribute intrinsically to these key challenges. We also invest in innovations because that is where the solutions for tomorrow emerge. Finally, we donate on several axes: within our domains and related challenges, with family members together, locally and to emergency aid.
The scope and method of this year can be read in detail in our Progress Report.
