EG ensures that all assets are closely monitored for performance and compliance with ESG requirements as part of its quarterly reporting and annual strategy review processes. At first instance, an in-house asset manager is responsible for overseeing the performance and compliance of each asset on an ongoing basis. The asset manager is then required to report on all aspects of the day-to-day operation of the asset to the Investment Committee which conducts an assessment as to whether or not the asset is operating in accordance with EG's ESG policies. This assessment includes consideration of the asset’s compliance with all relevant environmental standards. All relevant stakeholders are also consulted which ensures that community feedback is incorporated into the decision-making process. This process is aimed at providing a transparent system to ensure the asset is performing at its optimal level whilst ensuring ESG standards are met and where possible exceeded.
EG also holds biannual strategy sessions attended by the Executive Committee where the organisation's responsible investment activities are considered and reviewed. These deliberations of the Executive Committee also canvass possible future investments to ensure that EG's investment strategy accords with the organisation's values, including the value EG attributes to ESG considerations.
