What is responsible investing?

Responsible investing often involves incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, which are non-financial considerations that inform investment decisions based on an assessment of the risks these factors pose.

ESG is not about what a company manufactures or sells but how it goes about it.

Environmental

Takes into account the impact companies are having upon the planet today and in the future. Including, pollution, waste & emissions, raw material sourcing, native bio-systems & species, renewable energy & efficiency and recycling.

Social

Takes into consideration the social impact the companies are having upon people in the world. Including human rights, workers conditions & rights, corporate citizenship, supporting the wider community and consumer protection.

Governance

Considers the structure, procedures and practices by which a company is controlled and directed, including the diversity of senior management and their remuneration. Including business ethics, equality & diversity, fair treatment of labour, health & safety and shareholder rights.
