Activities

For USS, investing responsibly means basing our decisions on the best possible information about risks and opportunities in our markets; it means active ownership of assets in which we have invested in order to protect their long-term value; and it means working with the policy makers and influencers who shape our investment environment.

The activities we undertake as part of our responsible investment strategy fall into three core areas:

  1. Integration: we seek to include material environmental, ethical, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations within the investment decision making processes for all asset classes, where there is a financial bearing.

    We believe that by analysing ESG factors as part of our investment decision making process we can identify mis-priced assets and make better investment decisions to protect and enhance the fund’s long-term performance.

    We seek to integrate material environmental, ethical, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors into decisions at every stage of the investment process, particularly through due diligence prior to investment and the on-going monitoring and mitigation of ESG risks within the portfolio.

    Our data sources include financial analysts, specialist ESG research providers, specially commissioned bespoke analysis, and information from responsible investment and peer networks. As the materiality of ESG factors may differ between assets and asset classes – factors relevant to private equity might be irrelevant to infrastructure investments, for example – specific processes and systems are in place for each asset class.
