How is it applied?
Our sector analysts, who are highly knowledgeable on the respective industries they cover, are responsible for completing the Mirae Asset ESG Scorecard for all stocks in their Recommendation List. Moreover, as sector analysts are the key contact points with investee companies, they can act as effective enforcers of ESG engagement to influence companies to improve their ESG performance if required. ESG scores for all active holdings are updated on an annual basis. Should there be material ESG controversies or events, sector analysts or portfolio managers are also responsible to update a stock’s ESG score within 3 months if required.
