MC is committed to being an honest company — in the way we do things and the way we invest. We will act without hesitation to ensure that the path of responsibility goes up.
Requires More Than
In our view, it is impossible to separate the perceptions of corporate responsibility from responsible investments. We must consistently commit to being a responsible firm in order to be truly responsible investors.
We Act Responsibly
We are firmly committed to advancing our efforts as a responsible firm.
We Invest Responsibly
We fully integrate ESG considerations into our investment plan and design objective-driven solutions.
We are working to reduce our impact on the global environment — rethinking our business activities in order to utilize a few valuable global resources. We are also working to establish appropriate science-driven natural metrics and MC objectives.
We strive to be a very strong, diverse and inclusive company, that promotes corporate social behavior and is always connected to our many communities.
Our business model is built on a strong culture of risk management, risk-taking intelligence and a strong management framework that continues to change in the context of our limited partnership.
in Portfolios with Purpose
As responsible investors, we consider the environmental conduct of every company we research. It is important that we turn that lens around, examine the impact it has on the environment — and how we can become better environmental stewards.
In order to implement our commitment strategy and measure its progress, we have created a structure that reflects our full commitment to our commitment, from the Accountability Steering Committee to ESG analysts and investors and the infrastructure that supports them.
We are active investors, and collaboration is essential to our program. Each year, MC analysts consult with company leaders and non-corporate organizations, including municipalities, major providers and the private sector. We also engage selectively in our representative voting activities.
- Independent Opinions: With direct access to management, our equitable and earning equity analysts and a responsible investment team seek to develop an unbiased opinion on ESG issues through negotiations with companies. Different groups may participate separately or collectively if appropriate.
- Proprietary Tools: Using our in-house research and collaboration tools, MC analysts can share insights in real time and track any needed follow-ups for extended engagements.
- How to Build: As senior financial managers, we can manage constructive interactions with management teams and, where appropriate, directors, create a forum to discuss a wide range of sector-related topics, including ESG issues.
Engagement Campaign Report
In 2020, MC launched its first, targeted ESG Engagement campaign that focused on ESG metrics on high compensation and climate risk objectives and disclosures. MC portfolio managers and analysts joined our more than 350 large sums of money to take action, asking companies to improve current processes or adopt new ones.

Engaging with Issuers on COVID-19
Collaboration has always been an important part of our investment process, as we work to better understand the behavior of the issuers' ESG and, increasingly, stand for change. By 2020, we attended more than 12,500 meetings, which included producer-specific discussions and strategic strategic collaborations.
By 2020, the affected communities are COVID-19, economically and industrial, so getting involved in epidemic issues is crucial in discussions with management groups — as well as traditional topics such as compensation and carbon emissions. We want to make sure that hackers are well-to-do citizens and better understand the opportunities and threats.
MC investment experts are working with climate experts at Columbia University's Earth Institute to translate climate science into investment analysis. The program has produced the first climate change of its kind and an influential investment curriculum, "Climate Science and Portfolio Risk." The study project fills a great need for the property management industry to delve deeper into the problems of climate change and how it affects economic and financial outcomes. Classes cover the dangers of global climate change — including rising sea levels — as well as extreme weather forecasts, wildfires, and other threats from the tropics. The main goal is to better understand the impacts of climate change and to apply this understanding to investment decisions. We are excited to partner with the Earth Institute in using climate science to drive better results.
By 2020, we partnered with more than 350 large assets to operate, asking companies to improve current processes or adopt new ones.
The features of the ESG are fully integrated into our investment plan.
