With the money entrusted to Triodos SRI funds comes the responsibility - and the power - to influence the way the companies in which we may invest do business. The key element in our SRI strategy is active engagement and dialogue with the companies we invest in or are considering to invest in, aiming to raise awareness of sustainability, to stimulate action and to create lasting positive change. Where appropriate, we will seek to discuss substantial and relevant issues with regard to ESG performance, aiming to enhance the business performance of companies.
Engagement takes place during the assessment of a company, by means of (proxy) voting at AGMs and through collaborative engagement. Furthermore, we engage with companies, nongovernmental organisations, governments and independent experts to maintain our in-depth knowledge of sustainability issues.
We report about our engagement activities in our annual Engagement report: https://www.triodos-im.com/binaries/content/assets/tim/sri-theme-documents/sri_report__2016.pdf
