RELATED TOPICS​

NN Investment Partners (NN IP) has appointed Adrie Heinsbroek as Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO), as of 1 January 2021. 

In this newly created role he will advise the Board on sustainability matters and challenges, and their implications for the entire organisation to help ensure NN IP remains at the forefront of responsible investing.
 
In a rapidly evolving environment, NN IP is committed to remaining at the forefront of global sustainability and ESG developments. Appointing Adrie as CSO enables NN IP to leverage on his knowledge and experience whilst setting priorities and make decisions for the future. He will be responsible for bringing external developments that shape our operational surroundings and society, such as increased regulations and climate change, directly to the Board. In addition, he will advise the Board on NN IP’s own footprint and sustainability, and enable the further implementation of NN IP’s RI approach into its investment strategies.
 
Satish Bapat, Chief Executive Officer at NN IP, says: “As a responsible investor, we aim to improve both our clients’ returns and the world we live in. We do this by looking beyond financial performance, because the people we work for and with, represent more than just the investments we manage. Today’s announcement illustrates our strong commitment as a responsible investor. With Adrie’s extensive knowledge and expertise, I’m confident that we can remain at the forefront of sustainability developments and responsible investing, and can continue to deliver on our clients’ responsible investing needs.”
 
Heinsbroek joined NN IP in February 2017 as Principal Responsible Investment. He has over 20 years of experience in the field of sustainability and ESG integration. Prior to joining NN IP, Adrie was Head of Sustainability  at ING Bank in Belgium. Adrie holds a MSc degree in Social Anthropology and Development Sociology from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and has a post-academic certificate in Corporate Social Responsibility from TEMPO HEI.
 
Heinsbroek will continue to report to Arnoud Diemers, Head of Innovation and Responsible Investing Platform, and will additionally take on a direct advisory role to Satish Bapat, CEO of NN IP.
