Our Responsible Investment Policy has five main elements:
1. Minimum ESG requirements
EU weapon embargoes; and
UN Global Compact principles.
2. Active Ownership
Voting at shareholder meetings to advance good governance and to support action on material ESG risks;
Engaging with companies (both equities and fixed income investments) on relevant issues concerning the UN Global Compact principles, governance, and material ESG risks; and
Engaging with external fund managers.
When engagement is not feasible.
4. ESG integration: the systematic application of ESG factors in:
Portfolio construction; and
Reporting on RI policy, RI activities, ESG performance; and
Adhering to relevant industry standards.
