Sustainability

Integrating sustainability for long-term value

It is our belief that companies with good sustainability practices are likely to perform well financially in the long term. We integrate sustainability considerations holistically into our investment and corporate processes.

Our Approach

Investment Process

We are committed to being a responsible investor. Our focus is to protect and enhance the long-term value of our total portfolio, as well as safeguard our reputation. Sustainability opportunities and risks are assessed alongside conventional financial and market considerations for better-informed decisions. Additionally, we actively advocate long-term thinking.

We do this by:

  • Incorporating the quantitative impact of sustainability factors into our valuations;
  • Taking additional due care for companies more exposed to sustainability issues that will negatively impact long-term value;
  • Engaging with portfolio companies on sustainability and exercising our voting rights in a responsible manner.

Corporate Practices

Sustainability considerations are integrated in our corporate practices relating to governance, people, community and the environment.

We are committed to:

Ensuring sound governance

  • We conduct our business with integrity and require the highest standards for responsible and ethical employee conduct.

Nurturing our people

  • We invest in our people; foster the right culture; create a workplace that values diversity and respect; and support the well-being of our people.

Giving back to the community

  • We develop and support sustainable social programmes that create long-term value to build more confident and inclusive communities.

Managing our environmental impact

  • We utilise resource-efficient infrastructure in all our offices, and actively advocate environmentally responsible behaviour amongst our employees.

Procurement Practices

We source goods and services from vendors and service providers with responsible and sustainable business practices.

We do this by:

  • Communicating clear expectations for good standards of responsible and sustainable business practices;
  • Integrating additional due diligence on sustainability criteria in our procurement process, and screening our suppliers.
