Responsible Investment

As long term investors, the Foundation Board believes responsible investing, taking environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into consideration, can have a positive effect on long-term financial performance and investment returns. The Foundation Board will apply the following measures:

  • In evaluating prospective investment managers, the Board considers how ESG issues are incorporated into the investment decision-making process;
  • In evaluating prospective investment managers, the Board considers how investment managers engage with management to improve ESG practices;
  • Existing equity investment managers are requested to provide proxy voting reports and to highlight exceptions to their proxy voting policy; and
  • Requests annual disclosure by investment managers regarding the processes by which ESG factors are incorporated into the investment decision-making process.
