We seek to balance a sustainable approach to investing with creating real value for our clients.
At Triasima, we integrate environmental, social, and good governance (ESG) factors into our stock selection and portfolio construction to better manage ESG risks and opportunities, while having a positive impact on society. This is why we are a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment.
Launched by the United Nations in 2006, the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) promotes the integration of the six principles of responsible investment in the management of their portfolios. As a signatory of the PRI, Triasima has adopted these principles that are articulated around the integration of ESG factors in its investment decisions and a better transparency and disclosure of the impact of its investments to better align investors' interests with the sustainable objectives of society.
Climate change, energy transition, plastic pollution, water management, deforestation.
Human rights, child labour, modern slavery, fair transition and relations with indigenous peoples, employee health and safety.
Executive compensation, board diversity and structure, fraud, corruption, and money laundering.
Apply specific exclusion criteria based on a client's beliefs and values.
Include relevant ESG issues in our analysis and investment decisions to better manage ESG risks and opportunities.
Engage with the organizations in which we invest, promote the adoption of ESG best practices, and exercise our clients' voting rights.
ESG criteria are integrated into the fundamental pillar of our Three-Pillar Approach TM to capture the growth profile of companies in which we invest and their exposure to ESG risks. If these risks are too high, the investment could be rejected.
The SDGs are a global framework outlining 17 goals for a better, more sustainable world by 2030; we are targeting greater alignment of our investments with two of these goals, namely climate action and gender equality.
We have designed strategies to specifically address climate change issues, namely the Triasima Canadian Equity ex-Fossil and the Triasima All-Country World Equity ex-Fossil strategies. These strategies exclude securities of issuers with fossil fuel reserves or that use coal for energy production. These strategies are designed for investors concerned about the carbon footprint of their portfolio.
