Responsible Investment

Responsible Investment

As long-term investors, we know that the decisions we make today impact communities today, tomorrow and years from now. Responsible Investment is at the core of how we operate as a business and allocate capital, and we are committed to transparency and accountability regarding our performance in this area.

Welcome to the 2020 Responsible Investment Report

First Sentier Investors’ 2020 Responsible Investment Report captures the key issues we are addressing as investors: climate change, biodiversity, modern slavery and diversity. The report outlines why these issues are important, the challenges they pose and the actions we are taking to drive positive change.

Our 13th annual Responsible Investment Report provides a transparent view of our strategy, explores key industry initiatives and shares case studies detailing how we are working towards shifting the way we engage with companies.
