ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE

ESG at T. Rowe Price

"Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors can impact the sustainability and long-term success of businesses. Identifying, analyzing, and integrating information about ESG risks and opportunities help enhance our ability to make better investment decisions and pursue better outcomes for our investors. We also believe that our clients should be able to invest in a way that aligns with their values on ESG issues."

Rob Sharps, President & CEO

Our ESG Integration Approach

Environmental, Social, and Governance factors comprise a broad spectrum of considerations—positive and negative—that our investment analysts, supported by our ESG specialist teams, consider in the context of any company, industry, or region of the world.

Used with permission. PRI is not affiliated with T. Rowe Price. For reference, please refer to the PRI assessment methodology and the T. Rowe Price Transparency Report. Under the PRI’s transparency requirements, all signatories complete an annual self-assessment. A significant portion of this report must be publicly disclosed on the PRI’s web site.

All investments are subject to market risk, including the possible loss of principal. Impact investing strategies may not succeed in generating a positive environmental and/or social impact. The incorporation of environmental and/or social impact criteria into an investment process may cause a strategy to perform differently from a strategy that uses a different methodology to identify and/or incorporate environmental and/or social impact criteria or relies solely or primarily on financial metrics. There is no assurance that any investment objective will be achieved.
