Sustainability-related disclosures

The European Union (EU) created the EU action plan on financing sustainable growth in order to achieve the energy and climate targets set in the Agenda 2030. The financial services sector is essential for achieving the sustainability goals, as well as for sustainable development.

Investment decisions have an impact on the environmental, social and corporate governance matters. To fulfill our responsibility as a fund service platform, Universal Investment considers sustainability risks in advance of investment decisions as well as negative sustainability impacts caused by investments.

The EU action plan on financing sustainable growth has given rise, inter alia, to Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 November 2019 on sustainability-related disclosure in the financial services sector ("Disclosure Regulation"). Universal Investment publishes the following documents within the meaning of the Disclosure Regulation.

Policies on the integration of sustainability risk

In accordance with Article 3 of the disclosure regulation Universal Investment discloses how sustainability risks are dealt with in Universal Investment's investment decisions. Sustainability risk means an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause a negative material impact on the value of an investment.

Statement on principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors

Principle Adverse Impacts (PAI) are potential adverse effects of investment decisions on sustainability factors. Sustainability factors are environmental, social and employee matters, respect for human rights, anti‐corruption and anti‐bribery matters. In accordance with Article 4, paragraph 1, section a of the disclosure regulation, Universal Investment takes a position on the consideration and management of adverse sustainability impacts and discloses the activities and due diligence strategies on this matter.

As of December 31, 2022, Universal Investment has updated the statement on principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors in line with the requirements of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/1288 of April 6, 2022. Among other things, the reference period of the statement and the scope of the financial products covered have been adjusted. In addition, the statement no longer covers the entire group and only relates to Universal Investment-Luxembourg S.A.. Universal-Investment-Gesellschaft mbH publishes a separate statement.

Remuneration Policy
