At Janus Henderson we believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is critical for our long-term sustainable success. As a global, active asset manager, our mission is focused on helping our clients achieve their long-term financial goals, and we are confident our focus on integrating best-in-class Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices across our business allows us to serve our clients with simple excellence and empower them to achieve their financial objectives. In our business operations, we are committed to acting responsibly, not only in the way we invest and engage with our clients, but also in supporting our employees, managing our impact on the environment and contributing to the communities in which we live and work.

Through our CSR pillars of Responsible Investing, Environment, People and Community, we are leveraging our influence to responsibly deliver value to our clients, employees, shareholders and the wider community. Please take a moment to review our Impact Report, which explores our commitment to our CSR pillars and showcases the impact we make as an organisation and how we are preparing for the future.


To help ensure that strategic issues relating to ESG are appropriately identified and managed across the firm in the best interest of our clients, we established an ESG Steering Committee during 2021 consisting of several members of our Executive Committee and senior representatives responsible for ESG activities within our Distribution and Investment teams. Under this committee, individual initiatives have been created to ensure that the ESG operating model within Investments continues to evolve, our funds and mandates respect emerging regulation pertaining to ESG, and there is sufficient awareness of the firm’s activities relating to CSR. Our commitment to good corporate governance is held to the highest standards by our Board of Directors and our stakeholders and is evident in our practices and our policies, within which we explain how we act with integrity and honesty.

Responsible investing

We believe that ESG integration can help protect and enhance value, further our and our clients’ goals and empower our investment teams to develop their own distinct approach for their asset class and client base. Janus Henderson supports ESG integration through a framework that includes a wide range of tools and shared resources as well as appropriate risk management and controls. These measures are designed to ensure investment teams are aware of ESG risks and opportunities in order to meet our client’s requirements and maximise long-term, risk adjusted returns and positive outcomes for our clients. Our approach reinforces our belief that ESG factors are critical ingredients for long-term business success. In addition, as part of our commitment to responsible investment, Janus Henderson is affiliated with a wide range of ESG-related initiatives as a member, supporter or in an advisory capacity.

Our commitment to our people is key to our culture. As a business based on knowledge and relationships, it is important that our employees are challenged and empowered to grow along with our organisation. Our people-driven culture allows us to create an inclusive environment where all employees can thrive. We foster a culture driven by a shared commitment to our mission and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Our approach promotes collaboration, innovation, shared knowledge and equal opportunities for all. We achieve this by creating an inclusive work environment that appreciates diversity of thought and provides policies and benefits that support the needs of our employees and their families.

For a deeper dive into our commitment to our culture focused on DEI, please read our DEI Policy, DEI Report and our Impact Report, which also includes accomplishments, DEI targets and the annual gender pay gap report.

In 2021 we met our 3-year environmental targets to reduce our carbon footprint by 15% per full-time employee (FTE). In 2022 we set new 5-year targets in line with guidance from the Science Based Target Initiative for 29.4% for Scope 1 (fuel) and Scope 2 (electricity) emissions, and 17.5% for Scope 3 (business travel, hotel stays, freight, paper consumption, water, waste) emissions. We have also set intensity targets of 17.5% reduction on both waste and water per FTE. To measure our progress, we collect carbon data on a quarterly basis and review our performance in line with our targets.

In addition to this, we have maintained a CarbonNetural® certification since 2007 and offset all our operational emissions yearly. Through this process, we have invested in a variety of offset projects around the world, delivering financial support to essential renewable energy, forestry and resource conservation projects that support reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. All projects we support have been classified as ‘additional’ by an independent third party, meaning that they would not happen without the sale of carbon credits.


We believe it’s important for our employees to be actively engaged in the global community in which we operate through charitable giving and volunteering. Such service builds an employee culture that attracts and retains the best talent, extends the Janus Henderson brand and serves the communities where we operate. Through the Janus Henderson Foundation, we are able to invest in innovative educational programmes that will educate, empower and develop the next generation around the world as well as support global charities about which our employees are passionate.
