ACTIAM reveals carbon footprint of all funds


ACTIAM has become the first Dutch fund and asset manager to give insight into the carbon footprint of all its funds. Compared to 2015, ACTIAM has achieved a CO2-reduction across the board of 2.25 per cent and has moved a step closer to reaching its goal of reducing the CO2-emissions of all its investments by 25 per cent by 2025.  

In a bid to reduce its carbon footprint, ACTIAM has already decided to exclude coal mining from all its investment portfolios and index funds. In addition, the firm has entered into discussions with companies to promote the necessary energy transition.
Dennis van der Putten, Head of Responsible Investing at ACTIAM, says: “ACTIAM is aiming to contribute to a better world through its responsible investment policy. Now and in the future. In order to achieve this, we committed ourselves to the international goals of the Paris Climate Agreement; a maximum of two degrees rise in temperature. We translated this to the goal of reducing the CO2-emissions of all of our investments by 22 per cent in 2025. This requires insight into the total carbon footprint of all our investments. After this we can continue taking action to further reduce our carbon footprint.
“Capturing the total carbon emissions per fund makes it clear where our investments are impacting the climate and where we still can achieve environmental gains. By implementing our responsible investment policy, and specifically through our three focus areas (climate, water and land), we are stimulating companies to become more sustainable”.
