As Germany’s UN City we fully recognize the guiding principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC). Thanks to V.E’s Global Compact Screening, our asset managers can exclude serious violations of this standard in our municipal investments. This ensures that we will prevent future investments in companies that are conspicuous for human and labor rights violations, corruption or environmental pollution. In line with UNGC, we also exclude among others manufacturers of tobacco, anti-personnel mines and cluster munitions.
Carsten Buschmann, City of Bonn
