The Board and Investment Committee oversee responsible investment activity and progress, which is implemented by the Head of Investments and investment staff.
We also utilise an investment advisor, who has dedicated resources with expertise on responsible investment, to assist the Head of Investments and investment staff on implementation. We work with our advisor closely on responsible investment factors in the selection and monitoring of external managers and ongoing engagement with them on these factors. Our advisor draws on both internal resources for this analysis (ESG integration in the manager research process) and the use of third party ESG analytics for further implementation work (e.g. analysis of holdings such as carbon footprinting).
The Scott Trust (a shareholder of GMG) also oversees responsible investment activity.
