We work with scientifically based goals and base our activities on an innovative, data-driven approach to create meaningful change for future-proofing organizations. We report not only on financial returns but also on the social impact of investments, amongst others in terms of a carbon and water footprint, ESG risks as well as engagement and voting outcomes. To give an example, since 2007, we have screened over €4.5 billion in loans to more than 400 microfinancing institutions and more than three million helped entrepreneurs get a loan. And we continue to innovate on this area by collaborating with science and governments.
