Dutch government and educational employee pension fund ABP is planning a 50% reduction in financed CO2 emissions by 2030 compared to 2019, and will divest firms which do not meet updated expectations. ABP, which has €461 billion AUM, will also invest €30 billion in the climate transition as part of its new climate policy, which aims to achieve carbon neutrality in its investments by 2050. A third of the funds allocated to climate transition would be impact investments, across climate mitigation and adaptation. ABP said investee firms in carbon-intensive sectors would be expected to regularly report Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, set short, medium, and long-term C02 reduction targets, and invest in line with these goals. “ABP will no longer invest in companies that fail to meet these requirements,” it said. The fund, which decided last year to divest all fossil fuel investments, said it would further refine its exclusion policy.
