In 2016, we developed an IT solution to store our ESG research and companies' ESG profiles. ESG scores are available in Aladdin, the firm’s front to back solution.

In 2018 and 2019, we appointed ESG champions within each investment team to help promote ESG integration within each investment team and to liaise with the Sustainability Centre. Trainings sessions are organised centrally, both for the ESG Champions as well as across investment teams, as we work to enhance the firm's overall capabilities on sustainability issues.

10.3. Describe how you integrate ESG information into portfolio weighting.

Sustainable + funds with a Best-In-Class approach cannot invest in companies with a negative recommendation (corresponding to decile 8, 9 and 10), have a weight constraint on companies with neutral recommendation (corresponding to decile 4, 5, 6 and 7) and can be overweight on companies with positive recommendation (corresponding to decile 1, 2 and 3). This weight constraint has been put in place to guide these funds towards best-in-class companies.

Moreover, our full range of investment strategies now adopts a sustainable investment approach, involving the systematic integration of E, S and G considerations into investment processes. Our ESG integration process is guided by formal ESG Integration Guidelines, including KPIs ensuring our portfolios display better ESG characteristics, including targeting a higher weighted average ESG score and a lower carbon intensity than their benchmarks. These KPIs entail the overweight of holdings with a better than average ESG score and a lower carbon footprint.
