Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) integration

This graphic outlines how Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are integrated into Royal London Asset Management’s (RLAM) investment decision making process.

We define ‘ESG Integration’ as the explicit inclusion of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors in the investment decision-making process.

It’s essential to determine which ESG information is financially relevant – meaning it may impact the performance of the underlying investment - and then incorporate this information into investment decisions. To do this, we ask our asset managers to look over research on all of these factors. If necessary, this research can be supported by further analysis from dedicated responsible investment experts. Understanding these factors and the impact they could have on an investment will ultimately allow our asset managers to make more informed, responsible decisions.

By combining the skills of our asset managers and considering the ESG impacts of all our investments, we aim to provide better customer outcomes whilst working towards making businesses, society and the environment stronger for the future.
