At Alliance Strata Management we look to minimize our environmental footprint through an annual review of our processes, seeking ways in which we can more efficiently use our resources, recycle more of our waste and offset our carbon footprint. Our annual review helps us to identify those areas where we need to improve as well as identifying new technologies and processes that can help to reduce our impact on the environment. Such measures typically have the added bonus of making our operations more efficient from a cost perspective as well.
We like to make sure that we take an environmentally responsible view to our investment decisions. The environmental conduct of the companies we review as an investment opportunity always forms part of our decision making process. This is not just a question of good global citizenry, but companies that have poor environmental records have increased exposure to related risks, which must be accounted for when making a final investment decision. If a substandard environmental policy does not dissuade us from making an investment, we will look to receive cast iron commitments from the company’s management to address the outstanding issues within a reasonable time frame.
Alliance Strata Management also encourages all of our global partners and affiliates to be more environmentally conscious in their operations. This tends to be focused on improving energy consumption, reducing waste across the company’s operations and increasing recycling initiatives.
