Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

Schroders believes that companies have the ability to enhance their long-term performance through an understanding of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues affecting their business. In an increasingly dynamic environment where legitimacy and credibility in the market place are important indicators of corporate performance, a thorough awareness of ESG issues enables companies to potentially mitigate risks and liabilities that could arise from these issues as well as realise opportunities.

Central to responsible investment is our belief that it is in our clients' best interests to consider a company's management of, and exposure to, ESG issues. Companies that combine good governance and corporate responsibility will tend to deliver long-term shareholder value over time.

We believe that our approach to responsible investment is in compliance with the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. Our approach to Responsible Investment is set out in our Responsible Investment Policies.

The table below provides information on the implementation of our responsible investment approach.
