We are committed to being a “future maker”, using our investments and our ability to engage with companies and policy makers, to advocate for a low-carbon, environmentally sustainable and inclusive economy.
This is why we use stewardship – proxy voting, company engagement and public policy advocacy – to encourage companies and policy makers to improve their performance on sustainability topics. Promoting good ESG standards is an essential part of our ownership responsibilities. We believe that engagement is generally more effective than exclusion – although divestment can be a last resort.
Stewardship is part of the six pillars of our sustainability approach, and embedded in our Global Sustainability Strategy.
Meet Michael Herskovich, our Global Head of Stewardship
Our Stewardship approach is three-fold
A priority for us as part of our ongoing dialogue with the companies in which we invest is to promote good governance practices.
Engagement related to voting
Engagement linked to ESG performance
We believe that engaging with regulators helps to shape the markets and companies in which we invest and the rules that guide and govern company behaviour.
