Our Approach to Sustainable Investment

Sustainability is the determination of a company’s ability and strategy to mitigate and overcome risk factors, including ethical considerations. These risk factors may affect the ability of a company to create long-term economic value for investors and other stakeholders. Our approach is to analyse and make determinations of all risk factors that may to a material degree affect any company where we consider having exposure.

What is a Sustainability Risk?

In this context a Sustainability Risk is considered to be an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or potential material negative impact on the value of an investment.

Information on How we Integrate Sustainability into the Investment Decision-Making Process

The existential importance of the Taiga, the world’s largest and northernmost forest, is a reflection of a focus on sustainability in the Taiga Fund’s investment philosophy. Taiga Fund seeks to systematically incorporate sustainability considerations into our analysis and investment processes in order to optimise the risk-adjusted return of the Fund’s holdings. Sustainability Risk factors that are considered material receive more focus and are defined on a case-by-case basis. We encourage and seek to incorporate more Sustainability Risk data in our analysis as it becomes more available, objective and reliable.
