Responsible Investment Carbon Footprint

Our climate metrics & target

Our Net Zero Commitment

First Sentier Investors is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across its investment portfolios in line with a target of net zero emissions by 2050 (or sooner) and across its business operations in line with a target of net zero emissions by 2030 (or sooner).

We believe that society must drastically reduce emissions if we are to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis. For this reason the First Sentier Investors Group supports the global transition to net zero emissions in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. As allocators of capital, stewards of our clients’ assets and as active shareholders in companies on their behalf, the individual and collective decisions we make as investors will influence the nature and speed of this transition. We recognise that we have a wider responsibility to contribute through our investment activities and business operations to a sustainable economy and society.

Our Climate Change Statement and Climate Change Action Plan provide further details about how we will reach these goals.

Our commitment in practice: 

Climate Metrics

An important part of furthering the conversation with clients around climate change risks and opportunities is transparency and good quality information. Each investment team has prepared a climate change statement describing their approach to incorporating climate related issues into their strategies. The listed equity teams also publish carbon footprint reports which can be accessed from the respective team profile pages (accessed via top navigation bar). Below is the combined footprint for all listed equity portfolios.
