The event, including a sustainably sourced lunch, discussed progress and obstacles to incorporating sustainability criteria in company investments. Speakers included Harald Walkate of Aegon Asset Management, who explained how Aegon created went about creating one global sustainability investment framework for all the disparate national and regional pensions and insurance markets. Erik-Jan Stork of APG Asset Management, meanwhile, explained how the group is creating its own sector benchmarks to create greater transparency and comparability to facilitate appropriate asset allocation.
