Consistent with achieving investment objectives, The Fund’s investment policy will be implemented with the incorporation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors as core components of the investment decision-making and risk management processes by the Board in the assessment and hiring of an external investment adviser (“the Adviser”). The Committee will encourage the Adviser to consider Impact and solutions-based investments, engagement, and evaluation of the economic merits of current and potential investments taking into account governance practices, environmental or social impact, and regulatory and reputational risks.
The Committee will look to the Adviser to incorporate ESG criteria in the investment analysis and decision-making processes particularly emphasizing profitable investments with positive social and environmental impacts aligned with the priorities and values of The Fund, especially as it relates to creating impact in people and planet.
