Responsible Investment

At the National Pension Service, non-financial factors such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects alongside financial factors are taken into account in investment decisions in equities and fixed income.

ESG Integration Process

The NPS strives to achieve ESG integration based on ESG evaluation. The NPSIM has developed its own ESG evaluation system tailored to the characteristics of the National Pension Fund, and conducts ESG evaluation on domestic equities twice a year. In addition, the NPSIM frequently monitors ESG-related issues which may affect corporate value, and carries out materiality assessments with the focus on the severity and the probability of recurrence to identify the possible consequences of such issues on corporate and shareholder value.
