Over the years, the Office of Investment Management (OIM) built a comprehensive framework for its sustainable activities, based on the conviction that embracing sustainable investment opportunities and mitigating against environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks leads to better long-term risk-adjusted performance. OIM invested in the first green bonds in 2008 issued by the World Bank and was the catalyst investor in Low Carbon Exchange Traded Funds in 2014.
Our Sustainable Investment Framework sets out how we do this across asset classes, including the way in which we select and monitor asset managers.
