Integrating environmental, social and governance factors in investment decisions

Deutsche Bank continued to develop its approach to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into investment processes in Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (Deutsche AWM). To further these efforts in 2014, Deutsche AWM strengthened the team responsible for coordinating the ESG strategy and for enhancing capacities and competencies in the field of sustainable investment. In 2014, Deutsche AWM developed a proprietary application that can screen up to 1,500 subsets of corporate “ESG behaviors” for more than 5,000 companies. This means the division can develop products tailored to the specific ESG standards of individual institutional investors. At the end of 2014, Deutsche Bank managed assets invested on the basis of ESG criteria of approximately € 5.4 billion (2013: € 5.1 billion).
