This includes all aspects of our society. No Charity should be an exception. What can we do when we have no offices, no employees, no energy consumption?
Today, we achieve this through our Financial Reserves Policy. Like all Charities we hold some monies as longer-term reserves to underpin our future wellbeing. We choose to invest with a focus on Environmental Sustainability. In the investment world this is known as ESG. We have to do this within our overarching fiduciary duties. We require our discretionary fund managers to place at least 75% of our investments with funds committed to an ESG Sustainability brief.
This is not something new for us. From the very outset, in 1966, the Skiers Trust has had an environmental focus. Our first Trustees who set up the Trust were well ahead of the curve and most of their generation.
