OUR IMPACT SCORECARD

Our investments conserve and restore the natural environment, supporting a resource base and vital living spaces for current and future generations.

Our investments promote social equity, supporting politically stable societies and strong economies, and the opportunity for all to enjoy a good standard of living. 

 We are committed to comprehensively tracking and reporting upon the social and environmental performance of the investments that we manage across asset classes. We design custom indicators to measure outputs and outcomes for each investment and we also draw upon industry standards such as the IRIS catalogue of generally accepted performance metrics to identify indicators that are both appropriate and useful.

For each new investment, we assess three components relevant to impact.

  1. Impact Capacity. We look at an entity’s effectiveness in creating impact in the past, their impact management strategies and tools, and their practices and procedures for capturing outcomes and measuring success.
  2. Impact Realisation. We consider the beneficiaries – whether people or the environment - of the entity’s activities, and assess the likelihood that benefits will be realised. We also consider cost per unit of impact.
  3. Impact Catalysation. We consider the broader benefits that are likely to accrue as a result of the investment, including whether the investment will catalyse positive long-term social or environmental change in an area, demographic or industry.
