Responsible Investment (RI)

NILGOSC believes that environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues can affect the performance of investments. Accordingly, NILGOSC believes that these factors should be taken into account when managing the Scheme’s assets, subject to the overriding fiduciary duty to maximise the financial return on investments. NILGOSC has developed a Statement of Responsible Investment (RI Statement) to outline how such issues are incorporated into its investment practices.

As a means of demonstrating its commitment to responsible investment practices, NILGOSC has adopted the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment and votes at all company meetings in which it has a shareholding.  NILGOSC also engages with companies; directly by issuing engagement letters to UK and other European listed companies, in collaboration with other investors through UN PRI facilitated and other collaborative engagements and indirectly via its Fund Managers.
