Across all our equity exposures we screen for companies with exposure to controversial weapons, tobacco and predatory lending in accordance with the Responsible Investment Policy. Exact limits can be provided on request.
For all our equity exposures we receive ESG risk data from Sustainalytics. This data is used to flag companies that do not manage their ESG risk well, controversies as well as other ESG metrics. This risk data is used in addition to traditional risk-metrics to inform our decision making.
In some cases, we use listed equities to implement sustainability themes e.g. clean energy.
