Our Commitment
Our Commitment

At B&I Capital we approach sustainability with respect and responsibility. We integrate Environmental, Social, and Governance criteria throughout our investment process and company operations. We understand our role of being a responsible corporate citizen, active investor, and a fiduciary to our clients and as such are keen to actively participate in the creation of sustainable future.

Investing Sustainably

B&I Capital invests in a niche of the Global equity markets where we believe ESG factors play a vital role in long-term value creation and therefore contribute to the total investment return over long cycles. Incorporating ESG throughout our investment process enables us to assess our investees’ overall sustainability including their potential exposure to sustainability-related risks.

Please refer to our Responsible Investing document which describes our ESG integration in more detail and our Principal Adverse Impact statement which shows the impact of investment decisions on sustainability factors, as well as the Sustainability Disclosure documents on our products table.

B&I Capital is also a signatory of the UNPRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment) and cooperates with regional industry bodies, namely The European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) and The Asia Pacific Real Estate Association (APREA), to promote better governance and to formulate best ESG practices for REITs.


The UNPRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment) is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. It works to understand the investment implications of ESG factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

The six Principles for Responsible Investment are a voluntary and aspirational set of investment principles that offer a menu of possible actions for incorporating ESG issues into investment practice. By implementing them, signatories contribute to developing a more sustainable global financial system.

UNPRI Principles

  • Principle 1: We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
  • Principle 2: We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
  • Principle 3: We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
  • Principle 4: We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
  • Principle 5: We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
  • Principle 6: We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
Climate Neutrality
Environmental Engagement

Since 2019, B&I Capital has supported the Temboan reforestation project in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, which was initiated by the Masarang Foundation. The total area acquired for reforestation is about 800 hectares and the project also includes a restoration and protection of coral reefs that are in the waters right in front of the Temboan beach. 

Masarang Foundation has partnered with ITM University and Delft University of Technology to study the impacts of reforestation on local environment. Once the area is reforested, Masarang Foundation also plans to release animals from their Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue and Education Center to create new habitats. You can find more information about the Masarang Foundation on our Charities page.
