Our Approach to:
ESG & Sustainability
As a committed sustainable investor, our approach to ESG & Sustainability has three guiding principles:
- Our Purpose Statement
- The objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)
- Our commitment to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
We believe global economic development has enhanced the quality of life and wellbeing of billions of people. However, inequality is rising, conflict and insecurity are an ongoing concern, ecosystems are being degraded, resources depleted, and greenhouse gas levels are climbing. These trends are detrimental to communities, environments, businesses and long-term economic prospects.
Iona was founded with the strong belief that the increasing recognition and focus on climate change, resource efficiency and the ecosystems is creating value opportunities for investors as new markets, technologies and business models emerge.
