Although not formal objectives for the reporting year, RBC GAM and the CGRI team achieved additional objectives listed under SG 06.1.
Encouraging others to join RI initiatives
We reached out to our external asset managers to encourage them to review the PRI's six principles and consider becoming a signatory.
Documentation of best practice case studies
In an effort to provide our investment teams with topical ESG research and guides, an internal webpage was created by our CGRI team to share ESG-related content. Included on the webpage are case studies and examples of ESG integration.
Using case studies to demonstrate engagement and ESG incorporation to clients
Case studies on the ESG integration activities of our investment teams were published in our semi-annual CGRI reports, reports and presentations delivered directly to clients and prospects, and featured in wider publications such as the collaborative publication between the PRI and CFA Institute, "Guidance and Case Studies for ESG Integration: Equities and Fixed Income".
BlueBay provides detail on its specific responsible investment objectives in its RI Transparency Report.
