FNG Label 2017: first signs of a positive impact on sustainable investment funds // 23.11.2016
The FNG Label is having a positive impact on the quality of sustainable investment funds, as the results of the second awarding round of the FNG Label clearly demonstrate. 38 mutual funds successfully fulfilled the minimum requirements (2015: 35), thereby meeting the standard for sustainable investment in the German-speaking countries. 7 funds, among them one Green Bond Fund, achieved the highest quality grade of three stars (2015: 3), 21 funds were awarded two stars (2015: 14) and 10 funds received one star (2015: 15). 10 of the funds are from Germany, 16 from Austria, 7 from Switzerland, 4 from the Netherlands and one from Italy.
FNG-Short Report on the Occasion of the Eurosif Market Report 2018 // 27.11.2018
For the first time the FNG – Forum Nachhaltige Geldanlagen: the Sustainable Investment Forum of Germany, Austria and Switzerland is publishing a short report on its own market data for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH region) in comparison to developments in the European market as a supplement to the FNG Market Report 2018.
The FNG short report will be released at the same time as the Eurosif market report. It became necessary as the emerging market dynamics for responsible and sustainable investment in the past two years as well as the EU Action Plan on "Financing Sustainable Growth" (EU Action Plan) led to different terminologies in the EU countries in the interim period. One of the main objectives of the EU Action Plan is to achieve a common understanding of the potential of sustainable and responsible investment. Unfortunately, this could not be implemented simultaneously in all countries for the collection of market data for the 2018 Eurosif market report. As a result, different survey methodologies were used for the country reports in 2018.
