We show how we integrate ecological, social and governance (ESG) criteria into every step of the investment process in order to reap performance. We show our latest studies on in identifying financially-material ESG factors. Performance can be reported at two levels: financial and non-financial, i.e. social impact and reduction of green-house gases or coal exposure in the portfolio. Moreover we will be elaborating on what it takes for a Bank like J. Safra Sarasin to become the Swiss market leader in the field of sustainable investments.
