As detailed in our ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) Investment Policy, we believe responsible investing is essential to deliver long-term value – to our partners and wider society.

We hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethical conduct.

Our decision-making is guided by environmental, social and governance concerns.
