We continue to integrate data from our external ESG research providers into systems our investment teams are using, as well as our data warehouse and interactive ESG reporting tool. The purpose of this exercise is to enable investment teams to better integrate ESG into their investment decision making processes. We are exploring data requirements for portfolio impact measurement and SDG assessment.
In 2019 the Australian Equities Growth team implemented an enhancement to their ESG risk management by implementing a more rigorous scoring system that incorporates analysts score of E, S and G components. Companies at risk are identified using both external providers and the team's own internally driven research, which is based on a rigorous company meeting program.
