- We believe engagement, rather than exclusion, can have a more positive impact.
- Our analysts advocate for policies that can benefit investors, organisations and the environment.
- Our deep research can uncover problems and find opportunities, and we are able to act on our findings.
At Capital Group, our approach to environmental, social and governance issues is central to our entire investment process. We look beyond any single issue and take a holistic view of every investment we make, seeking out companies with sustainable business models.
We incorporate ESG into our investment approach through a systematic process with three interrelated components: Our sector analysts define the material ESG issues for each industry. They also reference several third-party rating systems to flag problematic companies and issuers, and we continue to engage in ongoing discussions with management teams. Each of these three elements enhances the others to create an ongoing cycle of scrutiny.
