THE INVESTMENT CONSULTANTS SUSTAINABILITY WORKING GROUP
The ICSWG brings together leading UK investment consulting firms with the aim of seeking to improve sustainable investment practices across the investment industry.
As a group, we believe that more urgent and constructive action needs to be taken to address the systemic challenges we face, particularly in relation to climate change. We recognise that investment consultants form a critical link between asset managers and asset owners and that, by working together, we can help to facilitate positive change that benefits our asset owner clients, their ultimate beneficiaries and wider society.
We commit to
Engage across a broad range of stakeholders, including asset owners, asset managers and regulators
Seek investment outcomes which are genuinely sustainable and not a tick-box exercise
Align with and support existing industry bodies and initiatives
Support clients who are too small to engage meaningfully with industry initiatives
Create guiding principles that indicate good practice and provide practical advice
Be a body where regulators, policymakers and other stakeholders can seek input when they need a view from investment consultants.
