APG appears to have broadly positive but limited engagement on sustainable finance policy. APG has stated support for the Paris Agreement and the EU's 2050 net-zero target and has commented on the need for reform to make the financial system more sustainable. During 2021, APG has also been part of investor initiatives calling for action to achieve net-zero by 2050 globally and in Korea. However, in a 2020 website article, senior strategist Thijs Knaap appeared to oppose the divestment from fossil fuels in the short term.

On its website in 2018, APG stated support for the EU's Action Plan on Sustainable Finance, particularly highlighting the taxonomy. In a 2022 website article, it further advocated against weakening the taxonomy to include gas and nuclear as sustainable activities. In an investor statement to governments in 2021, it also supported the mandatory implementation of the TCFD guidelines on reporting climate-related information.

APG has some information on its engagement on public policy in website articles and its 2018 group sustainability report, and has disclosed memberships to a limited number of third party organizations in the GRI Index section in its Annual report.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
