We are committed to creating access for environmental finance solutions such as lending for: clean energy, water, transport, low carbon technologies and social infrastructure. We will also continue to develop and support our charities which aim to improve the environment and the Bermudian community.

Clarien incorporates environmental and social risk (E&S) considerations into our financial activities and help our staff to continually identify and communicate these risks.

Understanding clients E&S performance is an important element of how we assess and manage risk. The consequences of failing to appropriately manage E&S issues can directly impact our client’s activities, our neighboring communities, the environment, our reputation and the long term economic viability of Bermuda.

Clarien Operations

Clarien’s commitment to improving the environment starts at our workplace and our approach to more sustainable operations. We understand the impact our operations have on the environment, and we are taking measurable action to reduce these impacts through our own efficiency, with new technologies and by influencing our supply chain.

In addition, our employees have a key role to play in reducing our environmental impact, and we are empowering them to make a difference through active community programmes such as Earth Day community events, post-storm sapling donations and our recent community LED light bulb exchange.

Clarien Governance, Policies and Procedures

Our investment approach reinforces the concept that long-term value creation and sustainability are inextricably linked. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) best practices are part of Clarien’s daily workflow and are captured in our Environmental Social Risk Policy.

As part of our general assessment, environmental and social impacts and risks are reviewed for each investment. Our review process is based on international environmental and social standards, such as the Sustainability Standards of the International Finance Corporation. If we detect gaps between those standards and the performance of an investment, we develop adequate corrective measures, which we detail in an Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP). The ESAP provides details on the gaps, the necessary actions, the responsible parties and a timeline for the implementation of each action. We work closely with our clients as a respectful and supporting business partner.
