Our Sustainability Commitment to You

Working for You
 

We at Responsible Alpha are fully committed to achieving the transition to a low-carbon, sustainable, and equitable future so that we can live as a society within planetary boundaries.

We base our business strategy on hope, otherwise called positivity, ambition, and expectations.

 

Hope moves entrepreneurs, motivates teams to tackle the next impossible challenge, deepens transition ambition, and inspires innovation so that replicable and transparent solutions can be deployed globally. Hope enhances and clarifies our company vision. We firmly believe that hope is our competitive advantage.

 

We as a team make this commitment both in the work we do for you, our clients, and in all our operations.

 

Our Vision

 

To provide every institution globally, which is committed to a transition to a low-carbon, sustainable, and equitable future, the solutions they require to immediately begin their transition.


Our Values

  • Impact: We are committed to enabling institutions in achieving positive change that can be measured, monitored, and managed within the lens of a low-carbon - climate and related metrics, sustainable - SDGs, and equitable transition - ESG Integration™. 

  • Innovation: We continually think of new and innovative ways to service our clients, focusing on customer collaboration in increasingly practical ways that help them achieve their transitional goals. We integrate cross-sector sustainability expertise into the real economy and financial markets to drive business practices which make a meaningful evolution to a low-carbon, prosperous and healthy society.

  • Integration: We enable our clients to migrate their processes and products towards positive environmental, economic, and social outcomes that meaningfully add to their own objectives while bringing them into the circular economy and regenerative paradigm.

  • Immediate: We deploy agile business-as-a-service principles focusing on individuals and interactions, replicable analysis, customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over dogmatic approaches. 

  • Inclusion: We value teamwork, openness, and the health, safety, and wellness of each employee and their communities.

  • Integrity: We actively promote building a culture of integrity that holds Responsible Alpha, its employees, and our clients accountable to the highest ethical standards. All our team signs annually and must adhere to the CFA Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct, the global benchmark for professional conduct for investment professionals around the globe.


Our Mission


Responsible Alpha advises investors and market participants on their transition paths to a low-carbon, sustainable, and equitable future.
 

  • Low-carbon future where climate change is mitigated, and we achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and seek to achieve a 1.5C world. 

  • Sustainable future in which the Sustainable Development Goals and their metrics are achieved when and where possible. 

  • Equitable future where corporations and markets transparently employ ESG Integration™ metrics to enable a just transition.


Our Ethos


Responsible Alpha integrates cross-sector sustainability expertise into the real economy and through financial markets to drive corporate strategy and financial market practice. This inevitably makes a meaningful impact towards a low-carbon, prosperous, and healthy society. 


With an international presence and local mindset, we drive cross-sector net-zero strategies to enable companies to ‘meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future,’ and thereby harness their massive resource allocation towards circular economies.


Environment

  • We frame our analyses within the planetary boundaries.

  • We are committed to interrupting the 6th Great Extinction. Our advisors include Ecologists and Environmental Scientists. We know the importance of biodiversity, and the expertise we offer reflects this.

  • We are committed to supporting institutions on their journey to a net-zero future. In 2022 we have achieved net-zero emissions in our own operations with a decarbonization plan based on minimizing our own Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GhG) emissions and purchasing carbon removals for our remaining GhG footprint.  

  • We are committed to using science-based facts when advising our clients to avoid any greenwashing. We advance sustainability awareness and policies as our advice goes beyond the regulatory here and now, to advice on long term sustainability solutions.

 

Social

  • We frame our analyses within the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption; the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; and the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We strive to adhere to the principles set forth in these standards as aligned with those aspects that apply to our operations and the services we provide, wherever we operate. 

  • We value diversity and are committed to inclusivity. We do not discriminate or make hiring/promotion decisions on the basis of gender, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, nationality, ethnicity, or any other identity. We have fostered an environment that empowers our employees, celebrates diverse perspectives, and aims to uphold these values in every regard.

 

Governance

  • We only use databases and deploy research and analytical methods that are fully transparent and replicable by our clients.

  • We are fully accountable to our clients in enabling them to meet their needs and goals to achieve their transition to a low-carbon, sustainable, and equitable future.

  • We are committed to transparency and accountability and will publicly report on our own sustainability performance annually.

  • Bionic Planet: Responsible Alpha is proud to be a corporate sponsor of Bionic Planet and Steve Zwick’s work, the leading podcast globally that provides a forum to discuss our collective transition to a sustainable planet.
