Driving Impact through Responsible Business
We believe that we have a responsibility to tackle societal challenges & integrate sustainability practices in all our operations.
Conducting Business Rooted In Purpose
We believe in paying our impact forward by helping those who are underserved. A significant volume of our work is done through pro bono service, board membership, and volunteering in emerging markets. We believe that the most valuable resource we can contribute is our time.
Even as demand rises for sustainable investing solutions, emerging markets present unique challenges, such as lower levels of environmental, social and governance (ESG) oriented investments and weaker corporate governance norms. We believe in the need for ESG-integrated business in emerging markets and have incorporated ESG engagement throughout our operations and across our business units. By living these values, we create lasting impact for our investors, teams, businesses and communities where we live and work.
We believe that combining profit & purpose are key to navigating humanity's challenges of the 21st century and drive meaningful environmental & social initiatives to benefit employees, communities, and the wider society. Below are just a few examples of the work we do in exercising our corporate responsibility.
We conducted a portfolio-wide review of climate change risks and opportunities in one of our medical centers, syndicated our findings and drove transformative action.
We launched an initiative to tackle the youth underemployment in the Caribbean, exposing them to healthcare & build professional skills for young aspirants in healthcare.
We developed a free digital tool to support Caribbean healthcare organisations with optimizing management of high Covid-19 case loads at the dawn of the pandemic.
We launched a philanthropic project providing healthcare services to populations falling outside of the healthcare safety net, both in urban and rural areas within the Caribbean.
How We Practice Responsible Business
Respecting the environment
We believe that protecting our global ecosystems to support health and wellbeing is humanity’s defining challenge in the days to come and prioritize driving energy efficiency across our operations to reduce our climate impact.
We are deeply committed to making a difference in helping communities thrive by prioritizing our social impact agendas, through building relationships with academic & development organizations, across emerging markets.
Our work is closely aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and we are focused on driving the need for reformed public health systems in emerging markets to empower the underserved.
