High score achieved for the 2020 Assessment was a result of a combination of factors and initiatives implemented by the Firm. Over the past couple of years Northern Horizon Capital has expanded its outside stakeholder engagement initiatives, improved ESG related reporting, increased consumption data coverage and transparency as well as put more focus on our colleague development and wellbeing.
Over the past few years Northern Horizon has placed ESG at the top of its strategic agenda. We made sure to expand our asset management thinking by incorporating ESG related aspects into our business processes. So, we are delighted to see that our proactive approach to sustainability is bearing fruit and high PRI assessment scores are a good proof of that. Strong performance in the PRI Assessment solidifies our belief that we are taking the right steps to live up to our sustainability commitment, notes Milda Darguzaite, CEO of Northern Horizon Capital group.
