As a global investment management firm, Invesco recognizes its responsibility to help sustain a healthy, clean environment for future generations. In addition to considering environmental issues as part of an overall investment process, Invesco are committed to continuous improvement in environmental management as an important part of the way we do business. Efforts include:

Principles for Responsible Investment, The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) initiative is an international network of investors working together to incorporate ESG (environmental, social, governance) issues into their investment processes.

Invesco's mission is, "Helping investors worldwide achieve their financial objectives." Invesco supports the PRI and recognizes the importance of considering environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues as part of a robust investment process. We are firmly committed to responsible investment and actively work to understand, assess and address the concerns and expectations of our clients while ensuring we meet our fiduciary responsibilities.

Our company is a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index Series. The Series communicates the performance of companies which meet global corporate responsibility standards to help potential clients make investments in organizations with good records of corporate social responsibility.

Invesco have a structured Global Environmental Steering Committee, which includes several senior managing directors, and was established to oversee and drive commitment of the company’s Global Environmental Policy. The committee monitors environmental impacts, gather ideas and suggestions for improving our global environmental management and approve initiatives which are then fed into the regional management processes.

Invesco have successfully achieved ISO 14001 in a number of Invesco offices, comprising approximately 82.6% of employees across the global portfolio. ISO 14001 is a recognized, world-class environmental management standard, meaning Invesco have the framework in place to manage our environmental responsibilities effectively, whilst striving to continuously improve and reduce our impact on the environment. Invesco have achieved the Carbon Trust Standard certification in the UK and disclose emissions globally through the Carbon Disclosure Project, Climate Change Program.

Year on year Invesco continue to participate in key Global, Environmental events such as Earth Hour, Earth Day and World Environment Day, with the Invesco Green Teams that are set up in the various offices around the globe, made up of employee representatives leading the way, raising awareness and arranging participation in various initiatives, such reducing paper consumption through printer reduction and, where it makes sense, encouraging the use of public transportation, along with litter collections in local areas to name a few.

Invesco’s efforts to be leaders in sustainability and continuous, significant progress in reducing our impact on the environment have seen us achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Certifications over the last few years, not only in the Hyderabad and New York offices, where we have achieved the Platinum and Gold standard, but also Houston and our Headquarters in Atlanta. LEED Certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building, with LEED-certified buildings using resources more efficiently when compared to conventional buildings. There are four levels of LEED Certification and the number of points earned determines the level of certification, with platinum being the highest available achievement. Invesco monitor not only energy usage, but also water and waste consumption to ensure we can take the relevant steps required operationally to reduce our impact.

Green buildings create a healthier working environment for employees and our continuous efforts and achievements ensure we provide the best, not only for our employees but also future generations.
