Engaging communities and sustainable investing

We have an active, employee-run community engagement program. Supporting communities is a cornerstone of our culture and an extension of how our investment teams invest.

We believe in driving a culture of giving back to society, within and beyond the firm.

Our community activities are an extension of how we invest.

For close to 10 years now, we’ve talked to companies about their environment, social and governance (ESG) policies. 

We find that good companies – those that are savvy at planning ahead, also tend to be more conscious of these factors. They understand that having the right ESG policies is part of a good sustainable business strategy.

At UBS Asset Management, ESG is more than just a buzzword. It’s in our investment process and also a corporate culture involving the business and investment teams.

Supporting communities at UBS

UBS is also actively involved with supporting communities globally. 

In line with our global policy, Community Affairs programs in Asia Pacific seek to overcome social challenges by investing in our two focus area of "education" and "entrepreneurship", providing targeted financial support and employee volunteering to generate positive impact in our local communities.
