Northleaf believes that responsible corporate behaviour will have a positive influence on long-term financial performance and is committed to incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into its investment processes at every level.
Northleaf’s Responsible Investment Policy applies across all investment activities firm-wide and includes an overview of the firm’s policy for integrating sustainability risks into its investment decision-making process.
We are pleased to share an overview of our recent responsible investment initiatives and activities.

Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures
Northleaf has been a supporter of the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board (FSB) Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) with respect to developing voluntary, consistent climate-related risk disclosures since October 2019. Northleaf is focused on investing in and building well-managed, more valuable companies. Responding to the risks and opportunities associated with climate change is an integral part of this approach. Northleaf believes that support for the TCFD’s recommendations will catalyse more consistent, comparable, and reliable disclosure of climate-related information that will, in turn, facilitate more informed business and investment decision-making.

ESG Case Studies
Corporate Social Responsibility
Northleaf is committed to giving back to the communities in which it operates and invests.
Northleaf considers broad ESG principles as outlined in its Responsible Investment Policy; however the firm does not directly consider “adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors” as contemplated by European Union Regulation 2019/2088 at this time. Northleaf may adopt further measures which take into account adverse impacts of investment decisions in this context.
