ESG at Capital Group

We believe ESG is key to successful investing. So we consider environmental, social and governance factors before we invest. 


Why ESG matters at Capital Group

For 90 years, our mission has been to improve people's lives through successful investing. We believe that integrating ESG into our investment process leads to better long-term results for investors.

Our commitment

Rob Lovelace, Vice Chairperson and President of The Capital Group Companies, Inc., and Jody Jonsson, Vice Chairperson and President of Capital Research and Management Company, explain our commitment to ESG and how it is embedded in The Capital SystemSM.

ESG is embedded into our investment process

Three key elements — our investment frameworks, monitoring process and engagement and proxy voting — are part of our investment approach, The Capital SystemSM, which can help us deliver better long-term results.


Investment frameworks

Drawing on deep research, our analysts identify the ESG issues that are material to each sector.


Monitoring process

Our investment frameworks, along with third-party data, enable our process to flag certain holdings for additional review.


Engagement & proxy voting

We can help influence change by engaging, instead of excluding.
