    ROBO Global ESG Policy

    Investing in Sustainable Innovation

    We evaluate ESG factors using a combination of internal research, regular interaction with index member companies, as well as support from leading ESG research providers to ensure they comply with all aspects of the ROBO Global ESG Policy.

    It’s important to highlight that our investment universe tends to naturally lean toward companies making active efforts to deliver positive ESG outcomes because automation, technology and innovation are largely about increasing efficiency and productivity while lowering environmental impact and freeing up time for humans to focus on higher-value activities.
