About

Our approach to responsible investment

At Aviva Investors, we've always believed that companies conducting their business in responsible and sustainable manner are more likely to succeed over time, benefiting our customers and society as a whole.

That’s why we were one of the first global fund managers to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment decision-making and one of the first to express our views through the power of shareholder voting. We are a founding signatory to the UN-backed Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) and one of the signatories to the UK Stewardship Code.

Today, we believe we’re among the leaders in our industry. We are responsible owners who encourage greater transparency and sustainability and better corporate behaviours that help to reduce the risk for our clients. We challenge accepted practices and promote fresh debate in every industry in which we invest. In doing so, we create greater shareholder value while building a genuine legacy for our customers, our communities and the planet that we all share.
