The Board of LGPS Central has ultimate oversight of Responsible Investment and its governance. This is principally executed through the Board's oversight and approval of the RI & Engagement Framework and the Company's Voting Principles. We have established an overarching KPI that 100% of product launches must receive our RI-Integrated Status (RIIS). To achieve RIIS a product must be approved by the RI Integration Committee (CIO, DCIO and moveable Investment Director). All product business cases are approved by the Board.
The RI & Engagement Framework and the Voting Principles are owned by the Director of RI & Engagement, and implemented by the RI & Engagement team, including the Stewardship Manager, and by the broader Investment Team that the RI & E team is a part of. Ultimate responsibility for execution of the Framework and Policy rests with the Executive Committee (CEO, CIO, COO, Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel).
