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

We select companies for engagement based on the materiality of their environmental, social and governance risks, the gap between current ESG practices and best practices, the size of our holdings and our key focus areas.

We carefully weigh the resources that we devote to engagement activities, ensuring that they will ultimately provide value to the beneficiaries of the CPP Fund and we seek to develop constructive dialogues with senior executives, board members, regulators, industry associations and other key stakeholders.

We also use a variety of methods to do this depending on the situation, including in-person meetings and formal correspondence, either independently or in collaboration with other investors.
