At Longview, we support leading organisations that promote and develop best practices for sustainability and stewardship principles in the industry.

We have been a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since 2010. The PRI is a UN-supported network of investors that works to promote sustainable investment through the incorporation of environmental, social and governance factors into investment decision-making.

We have also been a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code since 2011. The UK Stewardship Code sets high standards for stewardship, with a focus on activities and outcomes with the aim of improving the opportunity for the delivery of sustainable long-term investment.

In June 2023, Longview partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain* and achieved Carbon Neutral Certification in its operations. This covered measuring, calculating, and offsetting carbon emissions in our operations through internationally certified carbon offsetting projects around the world. This was carried within two of Carbon Neutral Britain’s funds – the Climate Fund™ and Woodland Fund™. The Woodland Fund™ has 10% of its budget spent on sustainable projects in Britain.

Longview is also a member of several other industry bodies which have varying roles to ensure that aspects of the overall financial system function well and that systemic risks are highlighted, understood and addressed. These include:

Longview Partners pays fees to some of these organisations to cover the costs of its membership and the services provided, specifically, fees are paid to UN PRI, IIGCC, The Investment Association and IIMI.
