The consideration of sustainability is essential to value creation and capital protection in driving risk-adjusted returns for our clients.
STANLIB’s approach to Responsible Investing is informed by the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investing (UNPRI) and the Code for Responsible Investing in South Africa (CRISA). Our clients have entrusted us with their wealth and savings to deliver long-term returns through the protection and growth of their capital. STANLIB believes that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is a material consideration in delivering risk adjusted returns to our clients and that as active owners we have the ability to influence corporates and entities that we invest in to incorporate ESG factors, thereby making for sustainable businesses. We are signatories to UNPRI and endorsers the CRISA code and we seek to follow principles set out in these codes.
