Responsible investing

Interest in responsible and sustainable investing is rising by the day, driven by increasing awareness of environmental, social and governance (ESG) challenges, as well as a recognition that these factors can influence long-term investment performance. 

From choice to necessity

The regulatory environment is also changing, with growing pressure to integrate ESG considerations into advice processes, whether it’s client fact finds or proposition development.

Sustainability is quickly moving from choice to necessity – and we’re here to support you and your clients.

The following video is about Responsible investment at Aegon and has a transcript (see below).

Future-proof your investment proposition

We want to help your clients invest for a fairer and more sustainable future – using our own investment solutions or selecting from the 200+ responsible investment options on our platform.

The climate emergency presents major risks and opportunities. For our workplace default funds, we’re committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, and a 50% reduction by 2030.

Stewardship is essential and collaboration is a key part of this. We’re members of initiatives such as the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and, at an Aegon Group level, the UN-convened Net-Zero Asset Owners Alliance.


There are many aspects of responsible investing. We offer a wide range of support, including easy-to-read guides and videos for your clients, as well as insights to help you navigate regulatory change.
