  • Climate change. How does a business impact on perceived and real factors of climate change. Its one reason why petrochemical businesses explore alternatives to fossil fuel to generate income.

  • Looking after employees. Creating the right employment policies and procedures.
  • Looking after customers. Even the most hard nosed executives are acknowledging the need to design products that customers are happy with. Profit at all costs is less sustainable. Reputational damage and claims for compensation have cost many a bank many a billions of pounds!
  • Animal welfare. Concern about the welfare of animals is a large consideration for those investors seeking a thorough understanding of the company or industry being analysed.
  • Corporate governance. The way a business does things should be the right way to do things. Are managers held to account? Are all stakeholders playing their part to manage the business better?
  • Management principles framework and risk assessment process. What are the policies procedures and risk management controls that make up the management structure of a company? What value is placed on the risk culture and risk management systems? What is the relationship between CEO chairman board senior managers and all stakeholders?
  • How are employees treated engaged and motivated? How desirable is it to work for the business under analysis?

However what is an ethical responsible investment?

What is unacceptable to one investor may be acceptable to another. Is investing in nuclear power unethical due to environmental risk? How do you quantify ethical or responsible behaviour then compare with other businesses in same industry or different industry?

There is a high degree of subjectivity in ESG risk analysis. Who decides and their perception of risk can influence the end decision.

  • Who judges the quality of the information?
  • What secondary evidence is there to back the business own risk assessment?
  • Are the critical risks under control?
  • Is the business taking enough risk or being innovative enough given that a lack of ambition or creativity can make a business unsustainable zombified dying on the vine!
