JTC signs up to responsible investing

Thursday 10 November 2022


Global professional services provider JTC has announced that it has become a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI).

The firm joins other global signatories that between them have combined assets under management or administration of over US$121 trillion.

Created in 2006, the PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment, working to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support an international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

INDOS Financial, which was acquired by JTC last year, was the only company within the wider Group to be a signatory to the principles. In 2021, JTC met its commitment to become Carbon Neutral through a partnership with Carbon Footprint Limited. Italso works to directly support the achievement of 10 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which are aligned with the PRI.

Wendy Holley, Chief Sustainability Officer of JTC, said: “We are delighted to be able to extend our UN PRI signatory status across the whole of JTC Group, which now covers over 1,400 people in 30 offices spanning 20 jurisdictions. As part of our ESG journey, we are implementing the strategy and practical work programme to deliver a more sustainable company for the planet.

“JTC has set itself a number of strategic targets through an ESG framework which is based on our purpose and cultural values, with Shared Ownership for all JTC employees at its heart.”

Victoria Gillespie, Head of ESG Services, added: “2022 has been an important year in JTC’s ESG growth. As well as developing our own ESG governance framework, we have created a range of innovative solutions which provide ESG services to clients who are looking to progress and deliver their own strategies for more sustainable practices”.
