ESG Principles

We believe that ESG considerations, combined with the right active investment approach, can be an important driver of positive alpha and excess return generation. Accelerating technological advancement/disruption and regulatory ESG-related initiatives are measurably impacting (both positively and negatively) business unit-level economics. We believe that investing through a thoughtful ESG lens helps us avoid risk and drive better long-term performance.



Combine fundamental approach with good corporate citizenship and proactive ESG awareness.



Stay within our core areas of Domain Expertise, avoid investing solely on the premise or promise of ESG. Emphasize opportunities where we believe ESG is a viable economic driver or has material tangential benefits.



Focus on good businesses we want to own over multiple years. Avoid making investments because it “feels” good or simply has a high ESG rating. Adhere to the Carlcorp Public Equity Investment Principles.



We seek to avoid companies doing harm; consider opportunities where consumer, social and regulatory preferences/trends create an economic driver.



We aim to identify good economic businesses where the core product or service helps alleviate a social challenge.



We aim to identify good management teams with strong operating skills and smart, shareholder friendly corporate governance. Seek transparency, shareholder communication, ethical behavior and diversity of thought. We opportunistically engage with management and boards behind the scenes.
