Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.
As a long-term investor, South Suez recognises the importance of sustainable investing and is committed to promoting sound ESG management practices within its portfolio. Poor ESG management can have substantial negative effects on the financial performance and viability of a business, both in terms of actual operations or through damage to its brand or reputation. Conversely, thoughtful and well-implemented ESG management can enhance profitability and create significant value for investors and stakeholders. South Suez has therefore developed a comprehensive policy on responsible investing that addresses identification, analysis and management of potential ESG risks and opportunities, both before investment and post-investment.
Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]
