ABN AMRO engages with companies by entering into constructive dialogue. The criteria for entering into an engagement process is when a company is breaching the Global Compact with a category five breach according to Sustainalytics. ABN AMRO may decide to conduct such dialogue through a partnership with a third party (or "engagement partner"). The engagement partner may act on behalf of a number of institutional investors (amongst others ABN AMRO), and should set up a team of specialists dedicated to analysing corporate governance and sustainability issues. This team is also responsible for initiating a constructive dialogue with the companies in which the clients of ABN AMRO invest, with the aim to increase long-term value. Companies under engagement will be subsequently given a specific timeframe (generally 3-5 years) for realising the required changes. If it proves unlikely that the changes will be implemented or lead to the desired results ABN AMRO may decide to add the company in question to an exclusion list.
