CCLA's bi-annual Ethical and Responsible Investment Committee is responsible for setting policy and monitoring the implementation of our Responsible Investment approach.
Due to the importance that we place upon the Committee it is Chaired by our Chief Executive and is attended by the Chief Investment Officer, the Head of Responsible Investment and other relevant members of staff. Decisions made by the Committee are binding upon all areas of our investment approach.
The standing agenda for the Committee includes, but is not limited to:
- Our Annual Responsible Investment Objectives
- Our Stewardship Priorities and progress against them
- The implementation of our ESG Integration Policies (for all asset classes)
- The implementation of our clients' ethical screens
Responsible Investment papers are also filed at the asset class specific committees. For instance, the Cash Management Committee recieves an annual review of our Money Market Funds' counterparties' ESG standards and the progress made through engagement with them.
