At Channel, environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are fundamental to the way we do business.
Channel seeks to promote responsible investments that:
- Deliver positive societal outcomes
- Support sustainable development
- Improve diversity
- Enhance human rights
- Treat all stakeholders fairly
As a firm, we take a holistic approach to our sustainable investment approaches.
We endeavour to pursue the best practices in environmental, social, and governance management.
Accordingly, we engage in business relations with clients, partners, investors, and suppliers who share similar principles and standards.
ESG is an evolving area, and we are committed to staying at the cutting edge.
Our dedicated ESG Team applies a holistic approach in implementing ESG principles.
We integrate ESG assessments into all our investment decisions, employing a group-wide exclusion policy and using our research and analysis to ensure that we only engage in business relations with clients, investors and suppliers who uphold similar ESG principles. In doing so, we are committed to employing best practices in ESG to ensure we stay at the forefront of this ever-changing area.
ESG assessments in all investment approaches – both at firm and fund level
Group-wide exclusion policy relating to controversial industries
Engagement with clients – Improve company’s management of material ESG risks and issue through systemic engagement
Our ESG assessment focuses on the ESG materiality of our investee companies — seeking to examine the relevance of ESG factors to a company’s financial performance and operations.
For us, materiality is of critical importance. Throughout each stage of the investment cycle, we leverage various data providers and our in-house proprietary tools to monitor and manage ESG risks.
