We are sensitive to the importance of acting responsibly as individuals and as a company in order to contribute to the current and future wellbeing of society.
Our approach to responsible investing
As such, our activity includes a series of principles that contribute to the spread of conscientious and honest practices in the market economy we inhabit.
We take into account environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria in all areas of our work. Please click here to read our responsible investment policy.
As a commitment to this endeavour, in 2014 we joined the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment and we conduct rigorous ESG assessments of the companies in which we invest. Our investment vehicles are subject to the industry’s benchmark sustainability rating.
Our offices have incorporated responsible waste management practices, minimising the use of plastic and promoting responsible paper management.
In 2011, the EDM partners agreed to allocate a portion of profits to patronage and sponsorship activities. Each year, we support at least three and as many as eight projects.

- Health: improving sanitary conditions and the quality of life
- Social integration and community development
- Corporate volunteering
- Conservation and restoration of historical heritage sites
- Visual, performing, musical arts
We have had the satisfaction of supporting 13 projects that have passed a rigorous selection process and helped a significant number of people. We are firmly committed to the continuation of this activity.
