At HarbourVest, we are driven by the belief that strong financial returns and positive social change can be accomplished in tandem.
We believe that the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors supports sound investment decision-making, which is at the core of how we seek to create compelling, risk-adjusted returns for our investors.
HarbourVest has been a proud signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2013. We recognize that applying these Principles may better align investors with the broader objectives of society.
Data capabilities are essential to understanding and managing ESG and climate risk. We are committed to sourcing data solutions that support our analysis of material ESG factors in a rapidly changing landscape.
We use RepRisk® to proactively research and monitor for ESG incident data.
We understand the urgent need for ambition in the financial sector to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, and we recognize that climate change poses both investment risk and opportunity.
Our climate strategy reflects our capabilities and stewardship potential – our goal is to develop a meaningful understanding of how the effects of climate change may impact our investments, and what we can do to build in more resiliency on behalf of our clients. We believe our role is to actively contribute towards an orderly transition to a low-carbon economy, whilst preparing for disruptive outcomes.
Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)
Our climate change strategy aligns with the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), of which we are an official supporter.
