Corporate Responsibility

Focused on driving progress and improving futures.

The impact we have on society and the environment is at the centre of our approach to corporate responsibility. We focus on driving progress and improving futures by acting in the most responsible way possible towards society and the environment at all times.

United Nations Global Compact

Since 2020, Schroders has been committed to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.

The UN Global Compact asks companies to align their operations and strategies to ten universally accepted principles. These principles represent the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were set up to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.

Four fundamental responsibilities

The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact relate to four key areas which we have aligned our corporate responsibility strategies and operations to. In addition to anti-corruption and human rights, our aim is to help end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.

People (labour)

We endeavour to improve the futures of those around us – whether it’s embracing our own people, or creating a lasting positive impact in our society.

 

 

Environment

Minimising our environmental impact by committing to objectives and targets such as reducing our global carbon footprint.

Human rights

Schroders is strongly opposed to slavery and human trafficking. We will not knowingly support or conduct business with any organisation involved in such activities.

Anti-corruption

Schroders is fully committed to preventing financial crime, as well as promoting companies that prioritise good ESG practices.

Sustainability reporting

As a global investment manager, we have an important part to play in shaping the future for all our stakeholders. We are committed to delivering sustainable value for our clients, and our focus on doing the right thing for them, our people, and wider society is at the heart of our culture.

We recognise the need for consistent and reliable sustainability reporting, and are committed to delivering transparency on this, both in our own operations and for the companies that we invest in on behalf of our clients. We are members of both the SASB Alliance and Standards Advisory Group, and intend to align our reporting with the SASB Standards from 2021.
