HMC has begun to undertake other efforts to assess the performance of companies and whether their performance changes due to HMC's engagement efforts. HMC joined the PRI Investor Working Group on Corporate Climate Change Lobbying in spring 2015. This initiative seeks to prompt companies to take action on climate change, including through lobbying actions that are consistent with the goal of preventing climate change. Working with other companies in the initiative, HMC developed an evaluative framework that it will use to assess companies. HMC will start to implement this evaluative framework and other activities related to the initiative in the next reporting year. Background on the initiative is available at the following websites: http://investorsonclimatechange.org/portfolio/pri-investor-working-group-corporate-climate-lobbying/ and http://www.unpri.org/whatsnew/investors-call-for-improvements-in-company-lobbying-on-climate-change/. The objectives of the group can be found here: http://www.unpri.org/wp-content/uploads/Investor-Expectations-on-Corporate-Climate-Lobbying_en-GB.pdf.cently.
