    Climate Change

    Our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship and mitigating long-term climate change is evident in both our office polices as well as our investment practices. Within our office, we recycle waste, select energy efficient products where practical, and discourage unnecessary business travel. In our investment policy we support the Task Force Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) initiatives.

    Investing Responsibly

    We believe that ESG issues affect the performance of our investment portfolios and recognize that applying the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (“UNPRI”) may better align investors with broader objectives of a sustainable society.

Our Responsible Investment Approach

Thoughtful incorporation and management of ESG issues is critical to our long-term success. By integrating ESG into our investment process we reduce risk and create value by identifying and managing material ESG issues across the full investment life cycle.

Calmwater has also made a public commitment to incorporate ESG issues in our investment process by becoming a UNPRI signatory in 2020.
