Learn more about our responsible business approach.

Our responsible business approach

As a signatory to The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, IFM actively engages on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues with the companies in which we invest with the aim of enhancing their net performance while minimising investment risk. Our responsible approach includes the following priority areas:

Climate change

Climate change

We recognise that climate change risks are investment risks. IFM is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across our asset classes, targeting net zero by 2050. We have also set a 2030 interim target for our infrastructure asset class. We are taking a number of other measures, including pursuing climate solutions and undertaking transition and physical risk assessments over new acquisitions and existing infrastructure, in order to protect and grow the resilience and value of our assets.

Workplace leadership

Workplace leadership

Promoting fair and equitable standards for working people is fundamental to our aim of delivering strong, long-term net returns. For our own working environment and the work environment for the assets we own, we consider working standards such as occupational health and safety, training and development, codes of conduct and whistle-blower systems, in our due diligence, stewardship and corporate practices.

Inclusion and diversity (I&D)

Inclusion and diversity (I&D)

Workplaces that reflect the communities in which they operate and welcome and embrace unique qualities, backgrounds and perspectives will lead to innovative thinking, better decision making and stronger performance over the long term. We champion I&D principles in our investment and corporate practices, which includes a focus on greater diversity at senior leadership levels.
