ESG+ is helping financial institutions to manage their investment portfolios according to environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
By screening financial portfolios according to ESG criteria we create transparency and awareness, which is then linked to commitments to redirect investments towards sustainability and climate-friendliness. Our rating model is based on criteria from civil society, working alongside of NGO’s, universities and government agencies. We developed the model in a cooperation between Allianz Austria and WWF Austria, giving us a strong proof of concept. Recently, this successful partnership was awarded the Austrian sustainability award TRIGOS.
Our vision is to upscale this project and thereby mitigating climate change through shifting investments towards sustainability.
