Supplementary notes

The source adds further comments: "Due to European diversity, the wide definition of responsible investment is any type of investment process that combines investors’ financial objectives with their concerns about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. Exclusions or negative screening is a strategy that involves removing companies or sectors from the investible universe of the portfolio. The exclusion of certain controversial activities is becoming common among European investors."
