SUSTAINABLE INVESTING

 

Our latest ESG Annual Report details our comprehensive ESG investment integration, company engagement, and proxy voting activities for 2021. The ESG landscape continues to evolve – from increasing disclosure regulation to international collaboration on tackling the most pressing issues facing the world today, such as climate change. The report takes a closer look at several key themes, including corporate political activity, the challenge of divergent ESG ratings, and the journey to net zero. It also explores the ins and outs of sustainable agriculture, the elimination of waste and pollution, and the transition to renewable energy – all as part of a wider shift to a more circular economy. We believe in sustainable investing with substance.
