In Schroders, we have been managing Private Assets for over 160 years. Today with Schroders Capital, our private markets investment division, we cover a broad range of asset classes globally.
By applying the skills of our specialised investment teams to a variety of investment opportunities, including ones that are harder to find and to manage, we aim to capture a complexity premium for our investors, provide them with additional diversification benefits and help them to achieve sustainability and impact related objectives.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business. We have had dedicated ESG resources since 1998 and were an early signatory of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), supports the UN Global Compact initiative and the Sustainable Development Goals. With a focus on climate change, Schroders is a founding member of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative and have committed to setting a science based target to reach net zero by 2050. We have also embarked on a corporate emission reduction programme and partnered with ClimateCare to offset the carbon emissions we are unable to remove. As members of the RE100, we will be switching to 100% renewable electricity for our offices by 2025. Our commitment is to embrace full disclosure and transparency leveraging recognised sustainability and impact accreditation and certification.
Schroders is a world-class asset manager operating from 38 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
