As part of a global business, we're committed to turning our own research into managers' approach to ESG and sustainability, on ourselves. We recognise that to maintain our core values of integrity, diversity, continuous improvement and a commitment to quality, we also must adhere to a culture of transparency. We also recognise that societal issues such as climate change are major concerns for key stakeholders across our staff, clients and society in general.
Since 2020, we've increased our focus on providing clients with greater insight and analysis into how funds incorporate responsible investment principles into their investment processes and objectives. It's important that we understand our own impacts on the economy, society and all stakeholders that we seek to serve, and be more transparent on key issues that are important to them.
In 2024, Zenith became a member of the Responsible Investment Association Australia (RIAA). RIAA champions responsible investing and a sustainable financial system in Australia and New Zealand and is dedicated to ensuring capital is aligned with achieving a healthy society, environment and economy. It is the largest and most active network of people and organisations engaged in responsible, ethical and impact investing across the region.
We acknowledge that putting sustainability at the heart of what we do is a continuous process and there are many ways we can improve what we do. We aim to work with partners and clients so that we can learn from each other to improve sustainability together across our industry.
As part of FE fundinfo, a global fund data and technology leader, Zenith contributes to the Groups annual sustainability reporting.
In 2023, Zenith Investment Partners became a certified B Corporation (B Corp). We're proud to be part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact.
Embedding sustainability throughout our business and operations is a continuous process. We want to build a business that's forward looking and makes long-term decisions which ensure we're making positive contributions to the environment and the wider society. To do this, we have a foundation of strong governance based on company-wide commitments and policies.
