Our Sustainability Plan
Through our collective ESG efforts, our objective is to enhance market-rate financial returns while considering positive social and/or environmental outcomes and good governance practices.
|1. Strong governance||Our sustainable and responsible investment work operates under the direction of our senior executives. Through robust governance and oversight, we strive to ensure that our activities are globally consistent.|
|2. ESG integration||We believe ESG factors influence the long-term risks and returns of companies. Evaluation of ESG factors is a natural extension of our fundamental research and investment processes and supports strong investment decision-making in a changing world. Our investment teams bear the primary responsibility for ESG integration and are supported by an expert team of ESG analysts to conduct ESG due diligence and company engagements.|
|3. Active and responsible stewardship||We participate in industry groups and policy dialogues around critical issues that advance the practice of sustainable investing, contributing to more resilient capital markets overall.|
|4. Dynamic approach||Sustainability is a never-ending journey. In a rapidly changing landscape, our planning must regularly account for the emergence of new sustainability initiatives and overarching systemic risks.|
|5. Transparency||As we advocate for increased transparency among our investee companies, we also seek to improve our own transparency on sustainability.|
