Among many other things, this approach requires us to credibly screen, measure, and report on impact across asset classes, philanthropy, and investments and to drive innovation in the impact and philanthropy space.
It also requires us to develop and implement offsetting within philanthropy and asset management.
We continuously aim to optimize the balance between return and impact and to evaluate our activities with this dual bottom line as our framework. And we are developing the infrastructure necessary for us to closely monitor innovative ideas and solutions which are right now presenting themselves at an impressive pace.
In accordance with the nature of the understanding, which is currently being developed in this field, we are committed to contributing with a focus on impact. To put it plainly: We want what we do to make a difference. This requires us to carefully assess the available options and, if they are not what we are looking for, develop the right one.
Our activities within this area and our outlook on sustainability are still young and in the making. We are, more than anything, committed to learning how to get this right, and we think of it as a great privilege to be part of the journey.
