Responsible Investing

More than a responsibility,
it’s our only way

EG understands the importance of incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria throughout the investment management process. Our board is responsible for ESG, including climate risk, and recognises this as part of EG’s fiduciary duty. For us, ESG is the only way.
