01.4. Provide a brief overview of your organization’s approach to engagement

We consider engagement with companies as part of our duty as a responsible investor. We aim at managing a constructive dialogue with companies in order to better understand their ESG performance, to understand their action plans to remediate existing ESG controversies and also to collect ESG information for more accurate analysis of their performance. In order to encourage companies to improve their practices and to promote transparency and disclosure, we undertake engagement actions either individually or collectively and through the responsible exercise of our voting rights as a shareholder.

Beyond engaging with issuers we invests in on behalf of our clients, we aim at being an important actor of the ESG space, deploying our resources across several and wide-ranging initiatives, generally involving a public communication and disclosure of specific commitments. Such initiatives include:

  • Liaising with several key stakeholders, including notably the research and academic world, to foster innovative and effective thought-process.
  • Actively promoting the efficient management of environmental issues, proposing innovative ideas to leading policy makers and contributing to the development of impact investing.
