ESG Priorities

As an international management and holding company, we keep track of a broad number of environmental, social, governance and economic topics that have an impact on our business and that matter to our stakeholders.

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

  • The generation of long-term, sustainable growth, including through new revenue streams from investments that benefit both the business and society;

  • The mitigation of investment risks associated with ESG and economic issues;

  • The attraction and retention of a skilled work force;

  • The interests of our stakeholders, including investors and ESG rating agencies and research firms;

  • Emerging trends, including regulatory trends, within our industry;

  • Guidelines from international frameworks and standards, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations Global Compact, and the GRI Standards;

  • Our impact on the economy, the environment, and/or society, including the communities in which we are present; 

  • Building trust and reputational value; and

  • Feedback from our business leaders.

Based on these considerations, we conduct an annual review to ensure we are focused on the right priorities. In 2021, we confirmed the following priorities across five themes:

  • Anti-corruption

  • Human rights

  • Diversity of the Board and executive management

  • Responsible procurement

  • Data privacy and security

  • Investing responsibly

  • Sustainable products and services

  • Talent development and engagement

  • Diversity and inclusion

  • Health, safety and well-being

  • Climate change

  • Shared value creation

  • Financial well-being and economic prosperity
