Barings' Approach to Sustainability

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG)

We have made ESG integration a core tenet of our research and investment process. This gives us a more holistic understanding of the complex issues, risks and value drivers that may impact our clients' portfolios over time.

Corporate Citizenship

We believe deeply in the “doing well by doing good” mantra, and think of our sustainability activities as a journey, not a destination. This has driven a long-term commitment to being leaders in corporate citizenship—in support of mobilizing private capital to achieve positive social outcomes in the community.

Active Ownership & Engagement

As an active investor and fiduciary, we believe in active ownership and engagement with the companies in which we invest, and vote proxies on behalf of our advisory clients.

Making an Impact

Our Sustainability Policy

We believe that by incorporating information on sustainability into our business practices and investment decisions, we can help create a sustainable economy, environment and society.

Our sustainability policy guides our business and the active management and responsible stewardship of our investments—across all our asset classes and geographies.
