At Hartford Funds, we believe our committment to human-centric investing aligns with the ideas and concepts behind sustainable investment. We believe it is possible and preferable to have a positive social and environmental impact while generating a competitive investment return. When evaluting the sub-advisers to our actively managed funds (Wellington Management and Schroders), we consider how they integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment process. At the same time, Hartford Funds has launched mutual funds with specific environmental sustainability and impact investing focus.
Beyond investing, Hartford Funds shows its dedication to being a sustainable business in the following ways:
Environmental Stewardship - Our headquarters is LEED Silver Certified
Communities and Giving
Ethics and governance
Diversity and inclusion - We are committed to increasing diversity at all levels of the organization; creating and maintaining an inclusive environment that values and respects all employees for their individual contributions and engaging with the next generation of talent to ignite interest in our industry and our company
Both Wellington and Schroders have their own detailed policies and strategy.
