The core role of the Sustainability Office is to frame ESG governance for Deutsche Asset Management and to ensure transparency for all stakeholder groups regarding Deutsche AM’s ESG activities.

The Sustainability Office delivers ESG governance through a set of ESG principles and guidelines, such as its Responsible Investment Framework statement. These guidelines facilitate ESG integration into our investment processes and additionally secure ESG integration into new product approval and reputational risk processes. One example is our global policy concerning Controversial Conventional Weapons (CCW). Going forward we will be examining a number of other controversial sectors.

The transparency efforts comprise of our mandatory ESG reporting requirements, for example, Deutsche Bank’s CR report and the PRI’s annual assessment. In addition, we supply information about our ESG activities to a variety of stakeholder groups. This is achieved through active participation in industry initiatives, market surveys, RfPs and our website.

Besides providing our internal governance structure and ensuring transparency, the Sustainability Office acts as coordinator for the multitude of projects and requests concerning ESG at Deutsche AM and that are directed towards the Responsible Investments’ team.



for all stake holders

"ESG integration only works if transparent and consistent governance is implemented. What guides us, what we do and how we do it are important for our stakeholders and employees. This is why we aim to continuously improve our own internal governance and transparency."
