UBP continues on its way to enhanced ESG investment standards

Key Points

It is our strongly held conviction that businesses must continuously enhance their environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) practices to be able to deal with the world’s current and future challenges.

  • We believe that responsible investing can help to achieve more sustainable returns and mitigate risks over the longer term.
  • As a signatory to the UN principles for responsible investment since 2012, UBP is committed to integrating ESG factors into its asset management activities. The number of UN PRI signatories now stands at almost double that of 2012 and represents over USD 60 trillion in AuM. Responsible investing can no longer be treated as a niche.
  • In order to tackle the world’s biggest challenges, governments, the corporate world and the financial sector must work together, hence our collaboration with the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership. In 2018, we became a member of their ‘Investment Leaders Group’, a select network of pension funds, insurers and asset managers committed to advancing the practise of responsible investment. This year we also joined Sustainable Finance Geneva, an association based in Geneva that brings together and mobilises individuals and organisations to promote innovation in sustainable finance.
