Corporate Sustainability

At Rothschild & Co, we want to use our influence and expertise to support the sustainability transition of the global economy.

A common set of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) priorities provides us with a clear focus on ensuring that sustainability is a strategic imperative across the entire group.

Business model integration

From our operational impact, to the products and services we offer, to the clients and supply chain partners we engage with, we are aiming to integrate these priorities at every level of our business model. ESG considerations play an increasing role in our approach to Responsible Investment and Global Advisory business.
