RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Enact Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACT) (Enact or Company) today announced that it has published its 2023 Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Roadmap (Roadmap). The Roadmap, a significant step forward in the company’s ESG journey, shares the Company’s priorities and approach to ESG ahead of the publication of its inaugural ESG report, which is expected to be released in the first half of 2023.
“Operating with strong ESG principles is an integral part of Enact’s core mission to help people achieve the dream of homeownership and has always been a key priority and strategic focus. Our culture centers on our commitment to improving the lives of our customers and communities by fulfilling this core mission,” said Rohit Gupta, President and CEO of Enact. “Having been a public company for a little over a year, our Roadmap is an important step forward in our ESG journey. We’re very proud to share our ESG priorities and approach to the continued integration of these priorities into the culture of the Company as well as the way we conduct business. I’m proud of Enact’s positive impact in the communities we serve, and we will continue to drive ESG considerations forward in every area of our business.”
Enact’s ESG priorities are based on a third-party assessment and ranking of Enact’s strategy and include perspectives from key internal and external stakeholders. The Company’s priorities are organized into three pillars that focus on the areas most germane to our business:
- Strengthening Our Communities: Enact enables families to achieve the dream of homeownership and create wealth while also delivering on its commitment to employee volunteerism, philanthropy, and environmental responsibility.
- Driving Diversity and Inclusion & Supporting Our People: Enact encourages and incorporates varied perspectives at every level of the organization in a supportive and inclusive environment to ensure that products and services are innovative and responsive to the diverse needs of customers and prospective homeowners.
- Focusing on Responsible Business Practices & Corporate Governance: Enact focuses on underwriting excellence, prudent risk and capital management, data privacy and cybersecurity, and regulatory compliance—all overseen by a diverse, experienced, and highly independent board.
The Roadmap contains descriptions of each pillar that inform the way the Company approaches ESG as well as progress against the strategy and how it is integrated into the business.
