LACERS’ ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE PROGRAM
As a responsible investor and fiduciary, LACERS recognizes that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk factors may enhance LACERS investment risk-return profile by considering additional risk factors (i.e., ESG risk factors) in its investment decision making process that might otherwise be overlooked. Proactively considering ESG risk factors demonstrates LACERS’ commitment to improved investment management practices in light of evolving changes in the global investment landscape.
The LACERS Board of Administration has directed staff to manage its ESG Program according to several ESG program guideline documents. The first document is the Responsible Investment Policy (RI Policy). The RI Policy identifies various ESG risks and strategic approaches and measures that add investment value while remaining consistent with the Board’s fiduciary responsibilities and the stated goal and objectives of the LACERS Investment Policy. The RI Policy can be viewed on page 82 of the Responsible Investment Policy document.
The second document is the ESG Risk Framework. This Framework addresses several of LACERS’ ESG priorities that include managing an ESG Program in accordance with Investment Policy, integrating the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, implementing a process for managing ESG risk exposures, exploring approaches to increase ESG investment exposure, and fulfilling the initiatives outlined in an annual ESG Action Plan. The Board believes that LACERS’ ESG Program when implemented under these guideline documents will safeguard the integrity of the Investment Program while fulfilling its responsibilities and duties owed to its plan participants and their beneficiaries. The ESG Risk Framework can be viewed on page 84 of the Responsible Investment Policy document.

One such program offered by LACERS is the Family Death Benefit Plan. Learn more about the program by watching the Family Death Benefit Plan video available on the LACERS YouTube Channel.
