New selection options have been added to this indicator. Please review your prefilled responses carefully.

01.1. 貴社に正式なエンゲージメントポリシーがあるかどうか示してください

01.2. エンゲージメントポリシーがカバーしている内容を示してください。

          our engagements are mostly based on company-specific issues, we also complete engagements on specific themes through all our investments
        

01.3. エンゲージメントポリシーのURLを記載してください。[任意]

01.4. エンゲージメントに対する貴社のアプローチの概要を説明してください。

Our engagement policy is a part of our RI process according to which the meetings with the management is the most important channel for engaging and influencing. Issues discussed with the management are mostly company specific and arise from company information and our own ESG analysis. Portfolio managers follow up how companies develop their processes and activities at regular meetings, by actively following the public information and by addressing specific issues by e-mails. We specifically target the companies with low ESG scoring.  Attention is given to development of KPI´s and how successful a company is in meeting its targets. In particular we look at company's ability to set more specific targets and to incorporate ESG into their strategy and throughout the entire value chain.

We also conduct engagements on a specific theme and in these cases we engage with all the companies we have invested in, if relevant. In 2015 and 2016 we have focused on environmental issues, e.g. reporting and interpreting carbon footprint information. Late 2016 we also sent an inquiry to all the companies that according to our knowledge do not report their emission, in order to encourage them to report in the future.

02.2. 補足情報。[任意]

We implement active ownership through portfolio managers' meetings with company management. We usually meet with company executives and investor relations officers and address relevant ESG issues, arising from our in-house ESG analysis of the company in question. Our aim is to influence and promote responsible business practices through active dialogue. Issues that we raise depend on the company's operations, sector it operates in and other factors such as company's lack of disclosure, lack of targets or insufficient communication or control in ESG matters. We specifically target the companies that have received a poor ESG score in our in-house analysis, in order to encourage improved disclosure and to gain better understanding of company's actions.

We participate in collaborative engagements on a case by case basis, depending on our resources and investment exposure to the issues in question . During the first half of 2016 we were involved in collaborative engagement on Labour Standards in the Agricultural Suppy Chain, coordinated by PRI.

03.3. 補足情報。 [任意]

Typically our engagement activities are company specific, arising from company information and our in-house ESG analysis. We prioritize cases where we see either significant risks or opportunities arising from ESG or where public information is limited (eg. small companies). In addition, we target companies that have received a poor ESG score in our in-house analysis, in order to encourage improved disclosure and to gain a better understanding of company approach to ESG issues.

We are also in contact with companies if an ESG incidence has occurred, firstly to clarify the situation and secondly to find out company action to mitigate the outcome and to prevent future incidences.

Records are kept of all company meetings and discussions, also including ESG issues. We further follow up on topics raised during the meetings and evaluate the progress in subsequent discussions with the company and through company publications. The information received at company meetings is stored in our database that is accessible to all portfolio managers. We also discuss the cases at our team meetings to share information, raise further questions, learn from each other and spread the awareness of the engagement activities performed.

06.5. 補足情報 [任意]

During the first half of 2016 we were involved in Labour Standards in the Agricultural Suppy Chain engagement, coordinated by PRI. The engagement was initiated in 2015. We have a relatively large exposure to Consumer Staples sectors and therefore had an interest to participate in this engagement. Our objective was to gain better understanding of various factors relating to the supply chain, identify issues we should aim to influence and to imply that knowledge to our further engagements and discussions with the companies we have invested in. For all collaberative engagements we would set similar types of objectives, stemming from our investment exposure to the theme in question. We monitor the actions taken by the companies on a case by case basis, depending on availablity of information and whether we have invested in the companies in question.

Engagements are carried out by portfolio managers and are therefore automatically incorporated in the investment process and decisions. All discussions with the companies are documented and saved in our ananlysis database and are therefore available to all portfolio managers.

The collaborative engagements we are involved in focus usually on certain specific sectors and issues. The information is passed on to portfolio managers when deemed helpful for learning and/or necessary for decision making.

We publish an annual RI update on our website. In the report we publish the number of meetings we have had with the companies during a year and in how many of these meetings we have engaged on ESG. We also disclose if we have been in touch with the companies on ESG through email or conference calls. In the report we also give some detailed examples on our engagement activities. If we have been partnering in collaborative engagements we also give general information on these in our annual RI report. In addition to this we started filming videoclips for our clients and the public on ESG topics. In these videoclips we also open up our engagement activities.
