Capital at risk
We use the term ESG focus to cover products with defined sustainability characteristics relating to environmental and social matters.
What is ESG focus?
All our strategies consider a broad range of issues that could affect their holdings’ long-term growth, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. But some go further to look explicitly for assets with defined sustainability characteristics. That definition may be narrow, for example, alignment with a climate objective or the exclusion of assets that don’t meet environmental or social standards. Or it may be broad, including assets promoting environmental or social outcomes.
How does Baillie Gifford achieve ESG focus?
Our strategies explicitly focus on identifying investments with environmental and/or social characteristics. They achieve this either through reducing negative impacts or promoting positive outcomes. In all cases, the assets must also have the potential to generate strong returns over the long term for you.
