Our Sustainability Principles

Our Sustainability Principles underlie our everyday work. They represent how we ‘walk the sustainability walk’, rather than just ‘talk the sustainability talk’! We provide Finance for Sustainability based upon these Sustainability Principles.

Our Sustainability Principles

We provide Finance for Sustainability based upon our Sustainability Principles which we summarise as follows:

UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: We endorse the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals:

The Sustainable Development Goals is a set of 17 “Global Goals” with 169 targets covering a broad range of sustainable development issues. These include ending poverty and hunger, improving health and education, making cities more sustainable, combating climate change, and protecting oceans and forests.

Collaboration between public and private sector is key to delivering the UN’s sustainable development goals.

Our Sustainability Principles are congruent with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Our financial solutions provide our customers attractive and well-structured models through which the private sector can profitably support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Practice what we preach! We carry out our day-to-day work in a sustainable manner.

We adopt sustainability best practices such as Reduce; Reuse; Recycle.

We subscribe to the sharing economy and choose public transport where possible.

Monetise Externalities: Excuse the ‘econospeak! In plain language: Greenhouse gas emissions pollute the atmosphere.

A price should be ascribed to those emissions and that price should be used to account for emissions within the financial statements of every organisation, whether public or private.

Our Corporate Sustainability Fund™ represents best practice in accounting for environmental external costs and builds value and resilience across your organisation.

Carbon Insight™: We are committed to ongoing investment in our ground-breaking research in Carbon Pricing and Portfolio Optimisation, a collaboration with leading international experts in climate change and quantitative finance.

Carbon Insight™ represents our R&D contribution to corporate sustainability and promotes best practice in accounting, tax and greenhouse gas reporting and compliance requirements.

Manage Timescales: Environmental benefits accrue incrementally, over time. In contrast, financial risk is higher during the earlier stages on a project.

We are committed to developing and managing financial solutions which specifically recognise and address this dichotomy in sustainability projects.

Partnership Approach: Sustainability projects are multi-faceted and complex, requiring the experience and resources of more than one organisation.

We promote a collaborative, partnership based approach to bring together the disparate regulatory, market, technology and financial inputs required to succeed in the development and operation of sustainability projects.

We work hard to ensure that communication between project participants is open, clear and timely.
