13 ESG STRATEGY We use our learnings across all ESG activities, as well as our understanding of emerging trends, to generate and communicate insights that help us continuously adapt and improve our strategies, processes, and approaches. Insight All investment staff must align with BCI's approaches to deliver on the commitments outlined in our ESG strategy. We will learn from each other to continuously improve and stay ahead of emerging and material ESG matters. Creating a Culture of ESG To foster a culture of ESG at BCI, we will expand our communication beyond existing reporting frameworks. We also plan to develop a focused internal ESG education and training program encompassing a range of initiatives such as: Communication and training for investment staff on best practices for ESG integration and others that are relevant to their particular asset class/sector Including ESG considerations into orientation and development of new board members Collaborating with client groups to engage with subject matter experts on material ESG topics Improving how we leverage our partners to learn from their experiences and expertise internally Improving how we disseminate ESG-related information across BCI and our client groups Learning From Each Other ESG activities occur across the corporation, so there is a significant amount of information generated by our ESG professionals in public markets, portfolio managers, and the ESG strategy and risk team. Pooling and sharing of information will allow us to be accountable, learn from each other's experiences, and implement improvements across the corporation. The corporate ESG working group meets at least quarterly to share perspectives, experiences, and knowledge regarding ESG risks, opportunities, and trends.
