Certain 500 Global Funds maintain an ESG Policy
The purpose of an ESG Policy is to ensure that a fund takes a responsible approach to investment throughout its investment cycle and recognizes the potential impact of its companies on the environment, workers, communities, and society, as well as the potential impact of climate change on the companies in which the fund invests.
Specifically, the policy can help to:
Account for material risks and potential opportunities which may make the business more or less attractive for investment.
Advise companies on ESG value creation opportunities.
Encourage the building of diverse and inclusive teams.
Build and scale technology responsibly.
Contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals
