Our social responsibility

We recognise the impact that we have on the communities in which we operate, and are taking action to help ensure a sustainable future.

Environment

We support projects that help reduce the impact we have on our local and global environment.

By working closely with local charities, we help improve the communities in which we operate. Our staff participate in beach cleans and works to improve nature reserves as well as being an active corporate member of the Manx Wildlife trust.

In 2020 we signed up to a partnership with Ecologi, a social enterprise which plants trees and invests in environmental initiatives around the world to help combat climate change.  In doing so it gives jobs to thousands of people.

Our partnership with Ecologi

By investing into Ecologi, it has enabled us to make all our staff carbon positive, which means that we are offsetting more than our collective carbon footprint puts back into the environment. This includes emissions from our homes, personal travel, holidays, food, hobbies and more.
Below is some information about our involvement, including the latest monthly statistics for August.

Climate positive workforce

We are committed to funding climate solutions that remove CO2 from the atmosphere. Importantly, we are supporting projects in areas of the world that need it most.

Projects we support

Protecting old-growth rainforest in Peru

The region has historically been subject to numerous conservation challenges. The Brazil nut concessions project supports the community to produce reliable income through passive harvesting. This incentivises the protection of the forest and its carbon sinking capabilities.

Restoring peatland in Indonesia

Despite covering just 3% of the Earth’s surface, peatlands store more carbon than all other vegetation types in the world combined. Indonesia contains some 36% of the world’s tropical peatlands.

Sustainable investing

Sustainability is a key ingredient to successful long-term investing. As a multi-asset manager, we cherry-pick the best specialist investment managers, and carefully assess the importance of sustainability in their investment process. At a minimum, all the managers selected to run money on our clients’ behalf are signed up to the Principles for Responsible Investing, and each have in place strict policies towards socially responsible, as well as impact, investing.

Governance as an investor

We take our role as responsible investors seriously and regularly vote on governance matters. We believe strong governance ensures that the investments we make on our clients’ behalf will withstand the long-term timelines typically involved, and deliver the best outcomes for our clients.

Transparency is also key to good governance. We aim to make all fees and charges clear, prominent, and provide complete disclosures. It’s why we always report our performance net of all fees.

Charitable giving

Nedbank Private Wealth matches donations given to or raised by our employees.

We also support charities through our annual client survey. For example, in 2019 and 2020, we made donations to the Cape Town Red Cross’s Children’s Hospital and London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital, both world-class centres of excellence for the care of and research into children’s health.

Also on an annual basis, Nedbank Private Wealth supports the Nedbank South Africa Charity Golf Day, which takes place in Q3 in Surrey and is the largest charity golf tournament in Europe. To find out more, please visit the event’s website: https://www.sagolfday.com/

Our charity committee also meets regularly to organise activities to raise funds across our offices. These funds, together with the corporate matched funding, are distributed to support staff-nominated local charities and worthy causes.
