Our environmental policy strives to exclude egregious environmental offenders at a minimum. Companies with large environmental footprints such as oil or mining companies are also held up to a higher level of scrutiny given the increased risk of breaches, regulatory crackdown and fines. In these industries, we try and pick among those with the best records as given the inherently polluting nature of their activities. We typically avoid investing in companies with poor performance in the areas of toxic emissions, greenhouse gas emissions, hazardous waste, environmental regulatory problems, biodiversity, and environmental justice.
