Our approach and credentials
At LGIM, we believe environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors – such as climate change, social inequality and executive pay – are financially material. So we see responsible investing as the incorporation of ESG considerations into investment decisions.
Responsible investing, in our view, is essential to mitigate risks, unearth investment opportunities and strengthen long-term returns for clients. It is also core to our approach: our very purpose at LGIM is to create a better future through responsible investing.
