How we inhabit

We believe change starts at home. We try to inhabit our own ecosystem in a manner that ensures a sustainable future for all. From the Green Team at our offices to our work in conservation and with communities globally, we aim to help preserve our natural world and support a better tomorrow for future generations.​

Our corporate sustainability strategy is focused on five areas — energy, waste, water, sustainable travel and responsible procurement — with the aim of reducing and mitigating our carbon footprint.

Ninety One Green, a grassroots initiative of champions within the business, drives our efforts to be more sustainable and ensures our actions are aligned with our mission to exceed clients’ expectations in everything we do.

Investments involve risk; losses may be made.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We’re mitigating our carbon footprint by forming partnerships with organisations in the UK and South Africa dedicated to expanding woodlands and engaging with communities. In our own offices, we have increased recycling by 209% through a comprehensive behaviour-change programme.

Ninety One Inspire

Started from a grassroots level and supported by our leadership team, Inspire is a network for women at Ninety One. The network provides support for female colleagues to reach their potential and achieve their career ambitions.

The Tusk Conservation Awards

In 2013, we developed the annual Tusk Conservation Awards in partnership with the charity Tusk and its royal patron HRH The Duke of Cambridge.

By 2018, this initiative had provided grants to 27 diverse conservation projects across Africa.
