Aeon Investment Management’s motive for developing an environmental policy is to create a framework that identifies companies’ current and potential environmental risk factors and quantitatively integrate them into the investment philosophy to ensure responsible investment.

Some of the factors that are considered in the analysis of an investment case include the degree of Climate Risk Disclosure, Water Usage and Conservation, Emissions Policies, Waste Elimination Programs and the alignment of Environmental Targets and Metrics to companies’ Remuneration Policies.

In addition, Aeon Investment Management also utilises the following online tools to account for and integrate company climate risks into the final analysis:
