Just like in 2019 and 2018, APG's largest client ABP leads the Dutch VBDO sustainable pension fund ranking. The Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development (VBDO) announced this today at the presentation of the VBDO Benchmark on Responsible Investments.


ABP scored 4.3 out of 5 points. APG's other asset management clients also performed well. BpbBOUW consolidated its second place with a 4.0 score. SPW went from fifth to sixth place (3.2 points).

Every year, VBDO examines the performance of Dutch pension funds’ responsible investment policies. The benchmark assesses the 50 largest pension funds in the Netherlands, accounting for 92% of assets managed with a total value of more than € 1.4 trillion.

Raising the bar

VBDO again raised the bar this year. New criteria were, for example, engagement with governments and reporting on positive and negative impact.
