Strong stewardship provides us with a better understanding of our investee entities and their governance structures and approach to ESG issues, which drives more well-informed investment decisions. Where engagement does not prove to be successful, we escalate the matter, potentially in conjunction with other investors.
We expect companies to ensure compliance with environmental regulations and aim to reduce the environmental footprint of our investments with respect to pollution, climate change, energy, water, and waste management.
The rapid degradation of ecosystems is a threat to the stability and prosperity of our economies. The transition to carbon neutrality must also address the biodiversity crisis.
We support initiatives that promote diverse and inclusive representations at all levels of our economic system as a means towards effective decision-making, innovation, sustainable wealth creation, and shared prosperity.
