Our Responsible Investment Policy Framework
To demonstrate our vision and approach on RI, NN Group developed the Responsible Investment Policy (RI) Framework in 2014. With seven key principles, we highlight the measures we will take to responsibly invest our own assets, as well the assets that our customers entrust to us.
The framework is based on NN's values: care, clear, and commit. These values, published as the NN Statement of Living our Values, outline the behaviour we expect of our employees. They articulate that we take environmental and social considerations into account in all of our business activities, and that we respect each other and the world we live in.
The framework also reflects various international standards and initiatives that NN Group/ NN Investment Partners has endorsed, like the Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI), Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and Global Compact, all of which are supported by the United Nations.
Global Voting Policy
Part of investing responsibly means exercising our voting rights as shareholders. NN has a Global Voting Policy in place to guide our actions when voting on standard resolutions. The policy lays down the high-level voting principles that every NN Group business follows. Every vote that NN Investment Partners casts at shareholder meetings – including proprietary and third-party asset voting – can be reviewed on the proxy voting website.
