The key ESG engagement topics are decided on an annual basis by Ethos and the members of the Ethos Engagement Pool. The ESG topics are selected acording to the priorities set by the pool's members.
The direct engagement on Swiss companies depends on each company's assessment of ESG performance. Ethos collects ESG data on the 200 Swiss listed companies. A systematic engagement is sought with every Swiss listed company.
Regarding non Swiss companies, Ethos relies on data provided by third parties such as Sustainalytics, RepRisk and Trucost as a primary source of information and input for the definition the engagement topics and targets.
