Our approach to Sustainable Investing is entirely consistent with our fiduciary responsibility to meet our Long-Term Return Objective
Possible actions taken include asking the entities in which the Fund invests:
1) Standardised reporting on ESG issues (using tools such as the Global Reporting Initiative)
2) Integration of ESG issues within their annual financial reports
3) Information regarding adoption of/adherence to relevant norms, standards, codes of conduct or international initiatives (such as the UN Global Compact)
4) Support shareholder initiatives and resolutions promoting ESG disclosure
The United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund holistically integrates ESG into the entire lifecycle of the internal equity investment process. Honoring the Fund’s commitment to PRI, UNEP FI, and UNGC, as outlined in the IPS, the UNJSPF considers ESG as standard due diligence risk exercise within the overall investment process, including risk monitoring, universe selection, and stock selection.
