We take the view that charitable contribution is a vital part of the healthy and proper functioning of any organisation but that how this is expressed is a matter of personal conscience. Individual professionals are encouraged to give generously of their time and resources outside the workplace.
PEP offers a Workplace Giving Program for employees to donate to charities of their choice from their pre-tax pay, which provides an efficient model for both donors and their recipient charitable organisations.
PEP supports the work of our industry to promote the highest standards for ethical investing and improved transparency. PEP has been a signatory to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investing (UNPRI) since 2012.
Transparency and disclosure
We want our investors, operating companies, employees, and all parties with whom we do business to know we strive to work in a responsible and ethical way. Integrity and professionalism are principal components of the way we seek to do business.
A commitment to giving personal time and resources
