Liontrust GF SF Global Growth Impact Report Q2 2020 - Page 14



Human Rights: UN Global Compact involvement and status
The United Nations Global Compact is an initiative
that businesses can sign up to which are a set
of principles to minimise the unintended negative
impacts of the business in terms of harm to the
environment and society. This includes a significant
amount relating to labour rights and human rights.
21.6% of the fund is invested in companies which are signatories
to the UN Global Compact (and the recognition of human rights in
enshrines) which is less than the average of the market it invests in which
has 37.1% of companies signed up to the UN Global Compact.
Human Rights: UN Global Compact Signatory
(Weight %)
50%
The UN Global Compact rate how businesses (regardless of whether
the company is a signatory to the UN Global Compact) comply with
their ten principles using a simple compliance rating of Pass, Watch
list or Fail.
This analysis shows that the fund has a higher proportion of companies
with the best compliance rating of Pass for the UN Global Compact
(98% versus the market average of 85%); a much lower proportion of
companies which are on the watch list (2% versus the market average
of 13%) and no companies that have the worst compliance rating
of Fail for the UN Global Compact principles (0% versus the market
average of 2%). This shows the companies the fund is invested in are
performing better than the market on this metric.
