We recognise that environmental issues including climate change present some of the most important challenges facing the world. They will be a defining driver of the global economy, society and financial markets over the coming years, decades and beyond. Schroders has a responsibility not only to its clients but to manage its own impact on the environment through its operations. Read our Group Environment Statement which sets out our position in relation to the environmental management of our operations.

Our four main areas of environmental responsibility

We have established an effective environmental framework to help us excel in this key area. We are constantly looking for ways in which to do this better and more effectively, and are committed to achieving environmental excellence.

Reduce our resource consumption, including the consumption of energy, water and other consumables, as well as reducing our waste creation and business travel.

Be transparent with our environmental impacts, sharing with stakeholders through initiatives such as CDP and UNPRI.

Prioritise renewables through The RE100 and the use of 100% renewable energy by 2025.

Commitment to ensuring compliance with all local, regional and national environmental regulations.

Our commitment to protecting the environment

In 2015, global leaders in Paris agreed to an international target to limit global warming to below 2oC. Our Climate Progress Dashboard currently shows that in fact, we’re on track for temperatures to rise by closer to 4oC. This lack of progress highlights the urgent need for real action.

Change starts at home and we are changing our behaviours to make sure that we have a better impact on the environment.

Read our Climate Transition Action Plan: Our path to net zero

This report outlines how we will manage our business toward net zero emissions in our own operations and value chain, and primarily our clients’ investments.

With years of climate research, risk analysis and action we have built a robust view of our current emissions. By channelling capital into sustainable and durable businesses we accelerate positive change in the world. Funding the future is a privilege; we use it wisely and responsibly.

Our responsibilities are aligned to the UN Global Compact

Important information:
What are the risks? Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amounts originally invested. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of any overseas investments to rise or fall.
Honesty and integrity are deeply engrained in our culture and it is everyone's responsibility at Schroders to ensure that remains the case.
However, like all organisations, we face the risk of things going wrong or of unknowingly harbouring illegal or unethical behaviour.
If you suspect wrongdoing, impropriety, unethical behaviour or have concerns regarding Schroders business practices, you may raise them confidentially.
All reports are treated in confidence and you can opt to remain completely anonymous. Schroders will receive a non-attributable summary of issues raised to address the concerns appropriately.
