Responsible Investment Reports and Policies

Reports and Policies

Responsible Investment


Our responsible investment strategy is founded on a strong governance framework. A key part of good governance are policies which set clear expectations for our people. Transparency is also an important component of good governance as it allows our clients and other stakeholders to hold us accountable. 

Below you will find our current policies and reports and past reports.

We welcome any feedback or questions on this or any aspect of our responsible investment work. To contact our responsible investment team please click here.

Global Responsible Investment and Stewardship Principles and Policy

Our Global Responsible Investment and Stewardship Principles and Policy builds on and improves our previous suite of RI policies in one consolidated document. The document articulates our approach to RI and what it means to us, and includes a set of guiding principles for investment team members as well as specific requirements in relation to ESG integration, corporate engagement, proxy voting and investment screens. Through this policy we communicate our approach to issues such as climate change, deforestation, the Sustainable Development Goals and human rights and modern slavery.

The policy was approved by the RI Steering Group in April 2020 following extensive consultation with the ESG Impacts Committee and other stakeholders in the business.
