Commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations

LGT Capital Partners has actively integrated ESG best practices into its investment programs and business since 2003 through a focus on in-depth manager due diligence, participation in PRI and involvement in other responsible investment initiatives.

esg-gp-guide_enLGT Capital Partners has a long-held commitment to incorporating ESG considerations into its client programs and its business overall. Since 2003, many of our programs have had a responsible investment clause written into their governing documents, authorizing us to exclude investments that are substantially exposed to arms-related activities, violations of human rights, irresponsible treatment of the natural environment or other non-ethical conduct of business. Furthermore, the firm was among the first alternative investment managers to set up client programs as regulated structures in Ireland and Luxembourg, which have high standards of corporate governance. In 2009, LGT CP launched its dedicated sustainable bond and equity offerings. In addition, the firm has been a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2008, and it participates in CDP and Eurosif.
