The formal engagement approach is carried out by SVVK-ASIR as our service provider whereas informal engagements are carried out when our portfolio managers contact management during our regular investment analyses.
Service provider engagements:
The head of Suva's Finance Department was a member of the SVVK-ASIR Board until June 2019 and therefore played a role in the engagement process. SVVK-ASIR was founded in December 2015 and its exclusion and engagement processes were subsequently established. Formal engagements began in 2017.
Individual / Internal staff engagements:
With some companies in critical businesses such as chemicals and banking we have adressed sustainability issues at the highest level of management (Chairman of the Board, CEO, CFO).
