Sustainability and ESG
At Albion we stand by the principles of responsible investment in our internal and external processes and policies to ensure alignment with our fundamental commitment to pursuing long-term financial returns for our clients. We are signatories of UN Principles for Responsible Investment.
Our mission: is to deliver strong, consistent long-term returns across the funds we manage and align ourselves to the long-term objectives of our clients and shareholders.
Our investment process: we incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations throughout the investment decision making process - we integrate ESG principles at the pre-investment, investment stage and exit stages. This forms part of our process to ensure an appropriate risk-return profile for our investments, and therefore creates value for our investors and helps our portfolio companies develop sustainable long-term strategies.
Our commitment: in making our commitment to responsible investment and sustainability we have aligned ourselves with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We believe that by focusing on a few specific goals - G13 Climate Action, G10 Reduced Inequalities, G16 Peace, Justice and Strong institutions - and actively monitoring them we are creating tangible positive action towards meeting of the global challenge by 2030.
Many investments within our portfolio also have good alignment with delivering a number of other SDGs, including G3 Good Health and Wellbeing, G5 Gender Equality, G8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, G11 Sustainable Consumption and Production ), which we continue to identify, optimise and evaluate.
