Environmental, social and governance statement (ESG)

At Richardson we hold ourselves accountable for the highest possible standards. 

 

As part of this ethos, we consider three factors when we assess the sustainability and relevant risk of potential investments and ensure they are integrated into the overall assessment of any investment we make.

ENVIRONMENT

  • Energy emissions and climate change

  • Population growth

  • Waste management

  • Biodiversity and food security

SOCIAL

  • Human rights violations

  • Working conditions and standards

  • Impact on communities

  • Equality

GOVERNANCE

  • Board quality and diversity

  • Corruption

  • Shareholders’ rights

In addition, while as active members of our communities we engage with as many stakeholders across society as practical, our businesses operate on a non-partisan basis. It is our policy not to engage in direct political activities such as endorsing or promoting candidates for public office.
