Building a sustainable future for current and future generations is APG’s overriding goal. Sustainability is a given for APG, in what we do, in who we are, and in how we contribute to a sustainable living environment. The way we see it, sustainability is all about “living together sustainably.” But how do we give actual substance to this?
The 4 sustainability pillars of APG
Practice what you preach
1. Working sustainably
We want to meet the same sustainability requirements the we - as an investor - set other companies Requirements related tot waste, food, energy consumption, mobility, diversity and inclusiveness. Our ambition is to be climate neutral by 2030.
Contributing ideas and actions
2. A sustainable pension system
We want to make pensions more transparent and explain what you as a citizen can expect and what options you have. Drawing on our wealth of expertise and skills, we dedicate ourselves to our core business and improving our performance every day. Both for employers and the members and beneficiaries of the pension funds we work for. We want to make life easier for them and keep them up to date on upcoming changes to the pension system.
Keeping our leading position
3. Responsible investing
We are proud of the leading position that we, together with the pension funds, have achieved (worldwide) as a responsible investor. Our focus is on continuing to contribute to the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.
For the benefit of our future generations
4.Contributing to the Netherlands’ sustainability transition
We want to play an active role in the Netherlands’ sustainability transition. In fact, we consider this our duty. And so, we support pension funds in their investments in areas such as the energy transition, infrastructure, and real estate. Where possible, we take active part in sustainable developments close to home. Our use of pension capital makes a twofold difference to Dutch society in that it offers solid returns and is futureproof.
