ESG Resources

Your hub for ESG support, education and information

Here to support, collaborate and create a difference

Welcome to our ESG Resource hub.  A place where you can access expert insight, educational content and support around the key areas of ESG to benefit you and your clients.

Our commitment to responsible investment has a long track record. We’ve been at the forefront of responsible and sustainable investment for 35 years and were the first carbon-neutral international insurer.

This year Aviva Investors, with the support of Aviva’s Executive Committee, has launched our Climate Escalation Programme. We'll provide relevant updates within the hub over the coming months.

As a platform business, we also recognise the importance of offering a range of responsible investments to help you help your clients create a better future. We offer over 180 ethically managed funds from a wide range of fund managers, which you can find using the advanced filters through our fund centre, including the Stewardship UK Equity Fund, the UK’s first ethical fund of its kind.

Defining ESG

In the past, it has been the case that financial factors and metrics have been researched and considered when making decisions about investments. 

ESG investing incorporates environment, social and governance (ESG) elements into a fund’s investment process, in addition to financial considerations.

The ESG framework is based on the belief that these factors are critical to a company’s future financial performance. The theory is that companies that don’t impact the environment, have a social conscience and are well-governed will out-perform other companies.
