Responsible Investing

McMaster University’s invested asset pools each use a responsible investment strategy aligned with the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing. Our strategy involves the incorporation of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations in investment manager selection, monitoring, and asset allocation decisions.

We have a responsibility to consider the social, environmental, and economics of the goods and services we purchase.

Sustainable Procurement

Factors considered under ESG

Each asset pool has a policy and procedure set by an oversight committee. The governance model including performance, strategies to address risks and opportunities, and climate-related metrics and targets are reported annually following the Task Force Recommendations for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”), endorsed by Government of Canada.
