瑞士瑞联 2021年可持续发展报告

瑞士瑞联 2021年可持续发展报告

瑞士瑞联最近发表2021年可持续发展报告,阐述集团将可持续发展信念整合于投资和运营的方式和进展。


这报告也包括瑞士瑞联的2021年气候相关财务信息披露工作组(TCFD) 报告,汇报我们如何识别及管理与气候相关的风险和机会。

2021年是可持续金融的关键年,在关于气候转变和生物多样性 的全球峰会相继举行之后,推动可持续发展已成为多个政府和企业的优先工作,而相关规例也开始重塑金融业的运营和竞争环境。

瑞士瑞联洞悉大势所趋,深切了解我们的责任,以及对实现可持续未来所能作出的贡献。

"通过引导资金满足新经济系统所需,以协助应对环境和社会挑战,我们责无旁贷。"

首席执行官 Guy de Picciotto

瑞士瑞联采取双管齐下的方式推动可持续发展,这包括通过投资发挥影响力,以及在环境、员工和社区层面履行企业社会责任。

拓展负责任投资系列

就投资而言,我们在过去一年取得多项成就。首先,集团已经建立自有的可持续风险管理框架,让我们能够识别与气候相关的投资风险,例如因天灾和转型而引致的风险。

第二,我们加强将可持续因子纳入于投资决策之中,并拓展我们的负责任投资产品系列,推出了几项新投资策略和产品,这包括生物多样性修复策略、能源转型投资证及企业绿色债券基金

T第三,在欧盟《可持续金融披露规定》(SFDR)于2021年3月10日生效之前,我们采取多项措施满足相关要求,例如根据投资策略参与推动可持续发展的程度,将旗下欧盟注册基金进行分类,以及在私人客户账户投资组合报表中加入环境、社会及治理ESG评级。

在我们签署联合国支持的《负责任投资原则》(PRI)踏入十周年,这些工作既反映可持续金融的演进,也是瑞士瑞联在这领域精益求精之印证。

为实现可持续金融的未来而协力

建立可持续金融系统有赖于跨界别的通力合作,我们因此在2021年加入了多个新策略性倡议,其中瑞士瑞联已成为自然相关财务披露(Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures, TNFD)论坛的成员,而旗下UBP Asset Management (Europe) S. A. 亦成为 “净零排放资产管理公司倡议” (Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative)的签署机构,

此外,我们参加了不同的行业活动和组织,这包括英国剑桥大学的可持续领袖学院(Institute for Sustainability Leadership, CISL)的投资领袖组(Investment Leaders Group, ILG)In this video, Senior Programme Manager Lucy Auden discusses the importance of collaboration and the ILG’s role in this space. 

Managing our carbon footprint

Managing our environmental impact remained a cornerstone of our CSR strategy in 2021. To help us reach our 25% emissions reduction goal by 2025, we continued to target the key drivers of our carbon footprint, most notably our consumption of electricity and heating as well as business travel.

To this end, we increased the use of renewable energy and electricity to 54% and 81% respectively, put into place several power-saving measures such as switching to LED lighting, and started to implement our 10-year renovation plan to improve the energy efficiency of our Geneva premises. We also began to apply our new travel policy in order to curb emissions from business travel as Covid restrictions were lifted in many locations.

Spotlight on UBP’s work environment

The 2021 Sustainability Report also sheds light on UBP’s work environment. A key highlight in 2021 was the finalisation of the Bank’s work-from-home policy, allowing employees to work from home one day per week. This move provides employees with greater flexibility and is expected to lower our commuting-related emissions.

Last year, we also focused on enhancing the sustainability awareness and expertise of all employees. We launched an 8-module
e-learning programme – “Sustainability@UBP” – and over 1,750 employees participated.

Engaging with our communities

Finally, the report shows how we continued to support our communities through social and environmental projects and sponsorships, such as the “Globetrotter” campaign where employees walked 63,000km, raising CHF 10,000 for five charities, or the clean-up events which saw over 140 colleagues collect waste on lake shores, by rivers and in parks in Geneva, Zurich, Lugano, London, Monaco and Hong Kong as part of World Cleanup Day. In this video, Guillaume Granelli, co-founder of Alaya, the CSR platform UBP uses, reflects on UBP’s community engagement activities.

Swiss equities back on the radar

Following a relatively lacklustre performance in 2023 and the Swiss National Bank’s recent interest rate cut, is now the time to revisit the Swiss equity opportunity set? In this Investment Rendez-Vous podcast, Eleanor Taylor Jolidon, co-head of UBP’s Swiss and Global Equity team, walks us through Swiss business models, current valuations and industries of particular interest.

UBP House View - April 2024

The unexpected interest rate cut by the Swiss National Bank marks the beginning of a new cycle of global easing, paving the way for new investment opportunities in the broader market. This has bolstered the Bank’s confidence in the Swiss and UK markets, which have been lagging behind the US indices. In addition, we have locked in gains on gold, which was the top performer in March.
