We appointed a dedicated resource 'ESG analyst' who supports the company analysts in researching relevant material for each company's own ESG challenges.We embarked on a detailed refresh of the ESG risks and opportunities for all stocks. We have developed our own view on what is most material ito ESG issues. For environmental and social issues, our focus centers around areas related to climate change, resource scarcity, waste management, general environmental impact; social controversies, health and safety standards, matters relating to labour policies and practices; approach to data security and privacy and in countries like South Africa, the company’s approach to and status of Black economic Empowerment.

A key part of our thrust was improving company disclosure so that we can make better informed decisions.
