ETHIBELs European quality label for socially responsible investment funds is a registered collective quality label, that was originally registered for the Benelux and now for all the countries of the European Union. This label offers the investor a real guarantee that these investment funds only invest in companies selected on the basis of ETHIBELs comprehensive evaluation model. When it comes to portfolio composition, these may only include shares and bonds included in ETHIBELs investment register. For the composition of this register, ETHIBEL looks for companies that are trend-setters in the field of social responsible entrepreneurship in their respective sector and region. Every company will go through a strict selection procedure. The evaluation is done by an independent committee of experts based on an extensive investigation. Pivotal in the investigation is communication with the company and with the stakeholders.
