Partnerships

To further develop the Fund’s business profile, the VNH organization has entered into partnerships with several pertinent organizations and business associations:

  • At the VNH Annual General Meeting in November 2009, shareholders voted overwhelmingly to endorse the comprehensive alignment of VNH's investment policy with the UN PRI's principles for responsible investing. As a consequence, ESG factors are now fully incorporated in our investment analysis and engagement strategy.

  • In 2009, VNH became a member of ASrIA, the Association for Sustainable & Responsible Investment in Asia.  With the expert input of ASrIA, the Fund conducted an in-depth staff workshop for training and awareness building in sustainability issues that positively influences our current decision making

  • South Pole Carbon helped VNH to calculate its CO2 footprint and identified suitable projects in Vietnam to properly and meaningfully offset harmful emissions. South Pole Carbon is a Swiss-based global leader in the development of emission reduction projects, the providing of climate action solutions, and active carbon asset management.
