HMC has taken a number of steps to promote responsible investment practices.
First, HMC has increased its internal capacity. For example, the Vice President for Responsible Investment conducted "lunch and learns" for colleagues that focused on responsible investment, the PRI, and how ESG factors are relevant to particular asset classes.
Second, HMC has encouraged external parties to adopt responsible investment practices. For example, HMC has encouraged other endowments to join the PRI. The Vice President for Responsible Investment also carried out webinars and spoke publicly at conferences for endowments and foundations that described how ESG factors can be integrated into investment decision making.
Third, HMC urged companies, primarily through letters, to adopt the SASB reporting standards, which include a range of ESG issues.
