We recognise the importance of integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues within our investment management processes. We believe that we have a responsibility to our investors to fully understand the impact of these issues and to embed ESG considerations into the way we manage our funds so that we may drive long-term value and mitigate risk.
We aspire to be among the global leaders in ESG integration. We aim to provide our investors with increased income and capital appreciation through best-in-class portfolio ESG performance.
The foundation of our ESG strategy is based on the primary belief that the way in which we manage our funds should be responsible, resilient and engaged.
Fiera Real Estate supports the Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, all UN Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Underlying ‘Agenda 30’ are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which address the urgent call to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and to protect our planet. The targets we have set for ourselves in order to meet our ESG commitments have been aligned with a number of these SDGs, but we have placed particular focus on the below:
We also promote responsible investment by providing resources and know-how to industry and sustainability associations. By doing so, we actively contribute to further development of the industry.
