What is First Sentier Investors doing?
In 2021, First Sentier Investors signed the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge, which provides a framework for financial institutions to engage with companies on nature-related risks, to assess both positive and negative investment impacts on biodiversity and to report relevant targets, risks and impacts publicly. The work of individual investment teams and our RI team continues to focus on key issues and company-specific risks.
For further information on the respective team’s progress on Nature and biodiversity, read our Responsible Investment Report 2021.
Reporting on progress
We have much more to learn and implement on this topic as we work towards fulfilling our commitments under the Finance for Biodiversity Pledge by 2024. Below we outline some of the steps taken since signing the pledge and are intending to take moving forward. A key forum for making progress on this issue in 2022 will be through our internal Biodiversity Investor Working Group.
