During my internship I had the opportunity to learn more about how sustainability impact companies and why it matters to investors. As an intern you are carrying out research on companies, whilst preparing and joining engagement calls to nudge companies to improve their sustainability practices.
I worked on different projects covering the ESG spectrum, such as gas pipeline developments and fair drug pricing. I also did a research project on the agrochemicals industry. This internship program provides a glimpse how asset managers engage with stakeholders to pursue sustainable investing.
