ESG Priority Issues

As an international management and holding company, we keep track of a broad number of social, ethical, economic and environmental issues that have an impact on our business.

An integral part of our responsible management philosophy is to ensure that we are focusing on the right environmental, social and governance priorities for our business. The following factors are taken into consideration to define and set our priorities:

  • Generate long-term, sustainable growth;

  • Enable new revenue streams from investments that benefit both the business and society;

  • Mitigate investment risks associated with environmental, social, economic and governance issues;

  • Attract and retain a skilled workforce;

  • Reflect the interests of our stakeholders and international standards, including the United Nations Global Compact and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals;

  • Contribute positively to the communities in which we operate; and

  • Build trust and reputational value.

Based on these considerations, every year we conduct a review to ensure we are focused on the right priorities. In 2020, we confirmed the following priorities within five themes:

  • Anti-corruption

  • Human rights

  • Diversity of the Board and executive management

  • Responsible procurement

  • Data privacy and security

  • Lobbying activities and political contributions

  • Investing responsibly

  • Sustainable products and services

  • Talent development and engagement

  • Diversity and inclusion

  • Health, safety and well-being

  • Energy and carbon efficiency

  • Climate change adaptation

  • Green procurement

  • Shared value creation

  • Financial well-being and economic prosperity
