Feature Story

Our Response to the Covid-19 Crisis

The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 was an unprecedented event that has caused devastating health and economic damage and disruption around the world, including in many places where PineBridge and its employees live and work. We took steps to respond to the crisis in our various roles as an employer, as a steward of our investors’ capital, and as an engaged member of our communities.

As local citizens, PineBridge and our employees participated in several regional charitable initiatives to offer relief and assistance to the most vulnerable communities, including those hurt by job losses, school closures, and loss of homes or facing hunger or other urgent health risks. Together, the firm raised over US$80,000 globally for regional charities, including:

Feeding America

Feeding America, the largest hunger-relief organization in the US.

NHS Charities Together

NHS Charities Together, which supports UK National Health Service staff, volunteers, and patients affected by Covid-19.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Hong Kong, supporting projects across Asia-Pacific that help families in need of decent and affordable housing.

Beyond Social Services

Beyond Social Services in Singapore, helping underprivileged children and youth break away from the poverty cycle.

As an employer, PineBridge worked hard first and foremost to ensure the safety and health of our workers. When the outbreak began, we immediately communicated new work protocols, flexible working arrangements, and staggered working hours, along with travel restrictions and mandatory quarantine requirements. The firm subsequently implemented full business continuity protocols, with more than 90% of our global staff working from home during the peak of the outbreak, in an effort to protect employees, their families, and their communities.

As an investor, PineBridge consulted on the structuring of two landmark social bonds to fight Covid-19 and made capital allocations to each on behalf of the firm. The proceeds from the US$1 billion bond offering by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the US$3 billion bond by the African Development Bank will support health diagnostics programs and the development of vaccines.

As an investment manager, our global client, investment, and support teams worked around the clock to engage with clients and ensure they had up-to-date information on the markets and the impact on their portfolios. We hosted topical webinars, held virtual meetings, and shared commentary to address their specific concerns and answer questions.

Progressing on Real-World Change

Our second annual Corporate Responsibility Report highlights the advancements made on our commitments over the course of 2022.

In 2022 we laid the groundwork for further real-world progress through commitments to a number of prominent, actionable global corporate sustainability initiatives. We believe concerted efforts with other stakeholders are the most efficient path to effecting real change, and they help guide our own actions – enhancing an investment philosophy focused on improvement over exclusion when it comes to ESG and sustainability issues.

We believe a pragmatic and thoughtful approach to fulfilling our corporate responsibility goals can better serve the interests of our clients, employees, and local communities – and lead to more effective long-term results.

Environmental Practices

As a responsible corporation, we think about how our business operations affect the environment. Although practices may vary depending on the office size and region, our firm applies several approaches to reduce our environmental footprint, including:

  • Providing touchless water, recyclable utensils, cups and plates to reduce bottled water and other plastic waste
  • Providing visible and clearly labeled recycling bins in our offices, and education on proper disposal methods
  • Reducing the use of paper via technological enhancements and, when printing is necessary, by providing secure printing and automatic double-sided printing options
  • Properly disposing and recycling of old computer equipment
  • Energy efficient hardware, lighting and air conditioning systems
  • Reduced emissions and carbon footprint via reduced/essential travel policies and video conferencing

To further our commitment to help drive actionable change on greenhouse gas emissions, we are a signatory of the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative.

At the core of our commitment is the belief that climate change is a dire threat to global ecosystems, societies, and economies—and that the asset management industry has a leading role to play in supporting the journey to a carbon-neutral world, in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. This commits us along with our peers to ambitious action in support of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, or sooner,
