Consideration of Sustainability Adverse Impacts

At Abac, we acknowledge sustainability factors are likely to influence the financial performance of our portfolio and have external impacts on our surrounding communities. We, therefore, strive to advance sustainable practices at our portfolio through active ownership and drive long-term value creation.

Our investment policies and processes are designed to integrate sustainability risks as well as identify and prioritise principal adverse impacts on sustainability factors throughout the investment cycle based on the analysis of a wide set of KPIs.

ESG KPIs monitor, among others, the following characteristics of the potential investment: Energy consumption and emissions, water consumption, fossil fuel consumption, packaging and waste management, supply chain ESG management, social and employee matters, and the implementation of governance policies.
