ESG Integration

ESG Integration

ESG integration is the practice of incorporating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) information or insights alongside traditional measures into the investment decision process to improve long term financial outcomes of portfolios. Unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation or included within the Fund’s investment objective, inclusion of this statement does not imply that the Fund has an ESG-aligned investment objective, but rather describes how ESG information is considered as part of the overall investment process.


The Fund manager includes ESG considerations in combination with other information in the research and due diligence phase of the investment process. ESG information may be sourced internally, via collaboration with the BlackRock Investment Stewardship team in engaging issuers on material environmental, social or governance topics, or from third-party providers. The Fund manager’s ongoing monitoring of the portfolio involves regular portfolio risk reviews with the Risk and Quantitative Analysis group. These reviews include discussion of the portfolio’s exposure to material ESG risks, as well as exposure to sustainability-related business involvements, climate-related metrics, and other factors.
