A forward-looking approach for a changing world
Sustainable investing is a forward-looking approach that aims to deliver long-term sustainable financial return in a fast-changing world.
We believe environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors will increasingly affect the ability of companies to operate and generate returns, today and over the long term. ESG factors also represent opportunities that investors can capture as companies innovate to build a sustainable future.
ESG integration serves as a foundation for investment decisions across J.P. Morgan Asset Management. We use a proprietary 10-point framework to incorporate material, relevant ESG factors in our active investment processes.
Our Alternatives, Equities, Global Fixed Income, Currency & Commodities, Global Liquidity and Multi-Asset Solutions investment engines have formalised their ESG integration processes for actively managed strategies.

Our commitment to sustainability
Principles for Responsible Investment
We have been signatories to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2007 and to Climate Action 100+ since 2020. We are rated A+ in the 2020 United Nations PRI Assessment. We report annually and are audited.
Investing on the basis of sustainability/ESG criteria involves qualitative and subjective analysis. There is no guarantee that the determinations made by the adviser will align with the beliefs or values of a particular investor. Companies identified by an ESG policy may not operate as expected, and adhering to an ESG policy may result in missed opportunities.
