Stoneweg's ESG strategy

Stoneweg’s approach to sustainability focuses on three areas:

We have identified these as our priorities through analysing recognised ESG and sustainability frameworks such as SASB, benchmarks such as GRESB and rating agencies such as MSCI; reviewing global trends in the ESG sector; benchmarking ourselves within our sector; and engaging with internal perspectives.

This considered approach, undertaken with third party guidance, led to us identifying these three areas as those having the greatest overlap between what matters to our stakeholders, and the foundational tenets of our business.

These three pillars are our sustainability priority areas against which we will focus our ESG efforts.

 

UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Stoneweg has set its objectives and commitments based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
