VBDO visits the shareholders’ meetings of the largest Dutch listed companies each year, in order to ask questions about environmental, social and governance (ESG) related issues.

This year the VBDO asks questions about:

Dutch industry embraces Sustainable Development Goals

The largest listed companies in the Netherlands embrace the Sustainable Development Goals. Research by the Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development (VBDO) at 35 Dutch listed companies shows that important progress was made in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2017. Step-by-step progress was also made regarding Natural Capital and Liveable Wages. Companies are encouraged by VBDO to develop an extensive picture of all three themes, with the SDGs as a guiding framework. These are the most important conclusions of the report ‘Act Together’.
