For us, sustainability is a sociopolitical and economic imperative. As a responsible company, FERI supports in particular the sustainable development goals defined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
In order to consistently embed and implement the sustainability strategy, FERI (Luxembourg) S.A. („FLX") closely collaborates with the FERI SDG Office, which was established in 2019 as a central competence center. It manages the individual, strategic consulting of sustainable investment solutions for our clients. To achieve sustainable economic success, we realize strategic investments in a customized, future-oriented and responsible investment strategy.
At the corporate level, we are also guided by the SDG. In our commitment to society and the environment, we focus in particular on five selected sustainability goals where we see our greatest opportunity to make an impact.
The 17 SDG and their 169 targets are a summary of the world's most pressing environmental, social, and economic issues; thus, they serve as a definitive list of key global sustainability ambitions.
Below you will find an overview of all relevant publications on the topic of ESG and sustainable investing.
The objective of the Sustainability Policy FLX is to define a clear understanding, associated norms and goals, as well as deriving compliant actions and behavioral rules regarding sustainability. In addition to regulatory aspects, our sustainability approach is based on the conception of the SDGs. Regulatory requirements and SDGs are significant factors for us in incorporating sustainability aspects and risks into investment decision-making processes. Furthermore, the SDGs form the basis of our commitment within the framework of corporate social responsibility.

For us, sustainability is an economic and sociopolitical imperative. The far-reaching measures of the "Sustainable Finance" initiatives of the German government and the EU will trigger a fundamental transformation of the financial industry. For FERI, this topic has been important for a long time and is now moving much more into the focus of our corporate orientation and activities.
