AIMCo searches the world over for investments that will generate the best return for our clients. We base our investment decisions on anticipated risk-adjusted performance, but we also consider the positive or negative impact that environmental, social and governance factors are likely to have on long term risk and return.
AIMCo is party to a number of responsible investment initiatives. In 2010 we became a signatory to the UNPRI, joining over 1,000 international investment institutions representing USD$30 trillion assets under management. UNPRI represents an appropriate peer group for developing best practices in responsible investment.
In 2011, we became a signatory to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and to CDP Water. The CDP is supported by over 500 of the world’s largest investors. Both CDP and CDP Water encourage firms to disclose their carbon emissions and water usage as a way of raising awareness about environmental risks and opportunities.
AIMCo has been a member of the Canadian Coalition of Good Governance and the Pension Investment Association of Canada since 2008. AIMCo believes that responsible corporate behavior and effective corporate governance are fundamental to providing our clients with the best and most sustainable return on their investments.
