Pensioenfonds Detailhandel - Pension fund for the Dutch retail industry

Pensioenfonds Detailhandel - Pension Fund for the Dutch Retail Industry - aims to pay out a good pension to its contributors and is convinced that sustainable investing will also create value in the longer term. Pensioenfonds Detailhandel encourages the companies it invests in to act responsibly towards the environment, society and employees. To further shape this vision, Pensioenfonds Detailhandel has developed a new sustainable benchmark (index) for its ‘developed markets’ equity portfolio, together with asset manager BlackRock and index provider FTSE Russell. The emphasis in this index is on improving the sustainability scores for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This new customized index has been developed based on validated sustainability models, with emphasis on the four SDGs included in the sustainable investment policy of Pensioenfonds Detailhandel: 'Decent work and economic growth' (SDG 8), 'Responsible consumption and production' (SDG 12), 'Climate action' (SDG 13) and 'Peace, justice and strong institutions' (SDG 16). Contrary to what may be thought of a typical pension fund, Pensioenfonds Detailhandel is a down-to-earth organization based in Utrecht. With more than 30.000 employers, over one million participants and asset under management of eur 28 billion, Pensioenfonds Detailhandel is one of the bigger pension funds in the Netherlands. The pension fund was established in 1972 and is a member of the Dutch Pension Federation.
