Energy transition

Throughout history, humankind has undergone shifts in its energy and fuel sources: from wood to coal to other fossil fuels like oil and gas. Each transition has seen companies move with the times while others lag behind. The challenge today is the speed at which the next transition needs to take place. To limit global warming to 1.5°C, renewable energy sources must account for nearly three-quarters of the total energy mix by 2050. Investment in renewables, battery systems and electrification is crucial. The scale of the challenge is vast, but it presents an equally immense opportunity.

    Our role

    At Van Lanschot Kempen, we recognise the transformative potential of the energy transition. We’re here to support our clients in capitalising on the opportunities presented – whether through investing assets, loaning green mortgages or driving electric cars. Together with our clients, we allocate their capital to companies that create financial and sustainable value.  

    The energy transition in our own operations

    We want to lead by example. We therefore aim to reduce carbon emissions for lease cars, international travel, and the gas and electricity used in our offices.

    Exclusion policy

    We believe that coal mining and tar sands have an adverse impact on climate change, and that companies shouldn’t be involved in such activities. That’s why we have an exclusion policy when it comes to certain fund managers.
