Describe your approach to screening for internally managed active fixed income
A combination of internal and external data is used to evaluate issuers on a focused set of sustainability and social concerns. Negative screens include cluster munitions and tobacco, as well as social sustainability issues such as factory farming. The list of screened issuers is updated regularly based on internal data and data received from ESG research providers. For more information on the screens applied, see our response to FI 05.1.

With respect to environmental screening for SSAs, this was implemented in March 2020.
