White Paper: Integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policies and Practices into Investment Portfolios
The potential for significant negative impacts on an investment portfolio from our changing climate, the dramatic loss of biodiversity in recent years, our emptying oceans, has been well documented but has not yet led private sector investors to act urgently to contain these risks. ADM Capital sees an opportunity to play a leadership role in facilitating portfolio companies to build resilience whilst helping transition to a more sustainable economy.
Being signatories to the United Nations’ Principles of Responsible Investing (UN PRI) since 2008, sustainability is interwoven into various lines of business of the ADM Capital Group – whether they be the conventional investments investing responsibly by following robust ESG guidelines (Galleus, ASLF Funds), or those actively placing sustainability at their core (Cibus Fund, TLFF). A common thread is the knowledge base provided by the ADM Capital Foundation, which has been working on environmental solutions across Asia since 2006.
Our consistent approach has gradually worked to convince our portfolio companies of the tangible and intangible benefits of thorough ESG analysis, including improved business resilience, access to a wider pool of funds, and general recognition as leaders. We believe that looking forward, ESG factors will drive investment outcomes like never before, and will soon become a part of mainstream investing. Investors will increasingly view ESG considerations as “necessary” while portfolio companies will realise and seek to optimise the impact that ESG factors can have on the future of their businesses.
