Berglund Payton Group, the international asset management and investment company, has recently stated that it does not want to have any connections with activities or to operate any transactions which are in direct conflict with regional and international nature conservation efforts.
The company does not fund any business entities or individuals that undertake illegal logging activities or are involved in the illegal wood trade. Likewise, it does not fund any enterprises whose operations contribute to deforestation or endanger important ecological environments. To that end, Berglund Payton Group seeks to actively engage and screen its clients in order to ensure that its investments protect forests and contribute to nature conservation.
Speaking on behalf of the company, Wanda Qinfang, Head of Global Affairs, said: “Berglund Payton Group does not sit idly by and disregard environmental hazards. We engage our investors and prospective clients daily in regards to our values pertaining to the approach and management of sustainable risks. We strongly disapprove of any activities that our clients perform which are in direct conflict with nature conservation endeavors and policies, even if said activities are undertaken within our clients’ network.
If a prospective client fails to meet our specifications we will not engage in any business activities with said party. In the event that a current client does not meet these provisions, we will engage them in a discussion to bring about improvements and, if necessary, will cease any contact, partnership or transactions if the progress is inexistent or insufficient. This is our manner of acting responsibly and protecting what remains of the world’s forests.”
Berglund Payton Group enforces a rigorous nature conservation policy, evaluating investors based on environmental, social and ethical risks. The company also assesses new or prospective clients by examining their activities and operations based on its sustainable risk policy.
“As a company focused on long-term sustainable investment results we cannot disregard the long-term effects of deforestation and illegal logging in the present-day context of global warming and the systematic disappearance of wildlife ecosystems. As responsible investors it is our duty to discourage any activities that directly or indirectly harm the world’s forests and to promote environmental awareness within our company and the communities in which we work” concluded Mrs. Qinfang.
