As a charity investment specialist we aim to ensure that our CCLA-wide approach to RI complements our clients' EI priorities. We survey our charity clients every three years to determine these, and client driven engagement can lead to divestment in the unusual situation where engagement fails. As a hybrid asset owner/investment manager we continue to build innovative asset owner groupings, ranging from voting and engagement coalitions, to membership bodies like the £17bn Church Investors Group.
We moved into the shareholder resolution phase of the, CCLA co-ordinated, £160bn 'Aiming for A' investor engagement coalition which focuses on the 10 largest UK-listed utilities and extractives companies (as some of the most highly exposed companies to climate risk). Supportive but stretching, shareholder resolutions were co-ordinated by CCLA at the Rio Tinto, Anglo American and Glencore AGMs that were passed by over 98% of shareholders.
