BlackRock's Approach to Sustainability

"To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society. Companies must benefit all of their stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate."

BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people achieve well-being through wealth. And as a fiduciary to our clients, we dedicate ourselves to protecting and growing the value of our clients’ assets.

From our perspective, business-relevant sustainability issues can contribute to a company’s long-term financial performance. Thus, further incorporating these considerations into our investment research, portfolio construction, and stewardship processes can enhance long-term risk-adjusted returns for our clients.

In order to deliver the best outcomes to our clients, we are also focused on the sustainability of BlackRock’s performance over the long-term. This requires taking into account environmental, social and governance issues that have real and quantifiable impacts over the long-term for our firm, our people, and the communities in which we and our clients live and work.
