Responsible investment

Responsible investment considerations are embedded in our decision-making processes and benchmarked against global best practice, as our research and experience tells us that well-governed companies make for better long-term investments.

Our approach to responsible investment is closely aligned to the United Nations Global Compact, which enjoys global consensus and supports a set of core principles in human rights, labour standards, environment and governance.

We have been a signatory to the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment since 2008 and adhere to our own Environmental, Social and Governance Policy. We are also a member of ESG Research Australia and the Investor Group on Climate Change.
