b. Environmental, Social and Governance Integration - including a requirement that environmental, social and Governance factors will be central to the selection assets, vehicles and managers; when a prospective investment manager is assessed, or an existing Investment Manager is reviewed, for any/all asset classes and mandates, the Investment Board will consider the Investment Manager’s environmental, social and governance policies, practices and outcomes, not just their policies; and

 

c. Monitoring and Reporting - requiring regular reporting to City Council, as part of TransformTO on:

2. how opportunities to invest in climate solutions are being addressed.
