Victory Capital’s view of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles is seen through two lenses: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Responsible Investing (RI).
CSR reflects how well we address our own ESG concerns, including our impact on the environment and our approach to diversity, equity, inclusion and corporate governance. RI predominantly focuses on how well the companies we invest in are managing their own ESG risks and opportunities.
This report highlights our commitment to CSR and our approach to RI. We conclude with a preview of goals for the coming year.
Corporate social responsibility
Throughout 2020, we demonstrated our commitment to CSR in a number of meaningful ways.
We filled a newly created position of Director of Responsible Investing to oversee our CSR and RI initiatives and to manage the integration and reporting of ESG metrics throughout our company.
Victory Capital is now using the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) framework to report on the material ESG issues related to our company.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we seamlessly shifted many of our employees to a work-from-home environment and continued our tradition of corporate philanthropy and service to the community.
We also made important moves to strengthen our established policies for building a diverse workforce.
Since our inception, environmental concerns, ethical behavior and social responsibility have been essential to our operations. They are the basis of our sustainability strategy.
