RESPONSIBILITY & STEWARDSHIP

We have been at the vanguard of sustainable investing for more than three decades and integrate ESG and active ownership across all our strategies. Our approach to holistic returns means we are committed to delivering excellent long-term investment performance and stewardship, while improving the lives of many.

ESG integration

We believe environmental, social, and Governance integration and engagement is important  for all asset classes and investment strategies.

Active ownership

We act as a responsible steward of investments through dialogue, using our rights as investors and taking action where necessary. 

Outcomes beyond performance

We are committed to delivering holistic returns – outcomes that consider the impact our decisions have on the wider world.

Responsible investment & ownership

Differences between the various types of ESG approaches can be confusing.

At Hermes, we believe there are two mutually reinforcing strands of responsible investment management: responsible investment and responsible ownership. Together, these aim to generate sustainable wealth creation for the end beneficiary investor encompassing both investment returns and their social and environmental impact. Here we present our ESG lexicon.
