09.5. 補足情報 [任意]

We attended 9 company AGMs in 2019 to (generally) ask questions on climate change adaptation. Our perception is that this level of attendance is uncommon in the UK (at one AGM we were the only asset owner to ask a question). At almost every AGM the Board commented that they were pleased to see our attendance and welcomed the question. We often had discussions with company representatives after the AGM. We would encourage asset owners to attend AGMs and ask a question of the Board.

実行者
目標

EAPF has a target of a target 20 per cent increase in the response rate of listed companies between 2015 and 2020 to CDP’s Water Program.

対象範囲およびプロセス

ESGトピック
Climate Change
実行者
目標

Highlight to companies in which we invest our need for them to be analysing their prepardness for climate change.

対象範囲およびプロセス

For our active equities we identified those companies which had an AGM in the UK and where possible sent a Pensions Committee member/senior officer to ask a question of the Board at the AGM. In general the question was climate risk based and focused on scenario planning or adaptation.

ESGトピック
Climate Change
実行者
目標

EOS has pressed companies to set science-based targets, conduct climate-risk stress tests, and make enhanced disclosures. It has also asked companies to link executive pay to the achievement of climate change outcomes, and to ensure they do not lobby policymakers or regulators to hinder the achievement of the Paris Agreement goals. In 2019, EOS continued to participate in collaborative investor initiative Climate Action 100+, which targets over 100 of the world’s largest corporate greenhouse gas emitters. The aim is to curb emissions, strengthen climate-related financial disclosures, and improve governance on climate change risk and opportunities. The ultimate goal is to help limit global warming to less than 2°C, consistent with the Paris Agreement. 

対象範囲およびプロセス

EOS took an active role as lead or co-lead engager for 27 companies in this initiative, which has attracted over 370 investors with over $35 trillion under management. In 2019 EOS attended six annual shareholder meetings to promote action on the climate crisis – a mining company, an oil major, a utility, and three car manufacturers.
EOS also helped to co-ordinate the work of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change’s shareholder resolutions sub-group, identifying companies that could be potential targets for climate change-related resolutions, and the utilities sector sub-group, formulating and co-ordinating engagement strategies for the sector.

ESGトピック
Human rights
実行者
目標

EOS engages on critical human rights issues including eradicating forced labour and child labour in supply chains. Many companies rely on global supply chains to access labour in low-cost regions, but the fragmented and opaque nature of these chains heightens the risk of human rights abuses. Traditional, announced audits may not uncover issues – more robust due diligence is needed. EOS engages with companies across five key areas: forced labour and modern slavery, child labour, living wages and purchasing practices, worker voice and gender-specific issues.

対象範囲およびプロセス

EOS engaged with a Malaysian palm oil company over several years following NGO and media reports in 2012 of poor labour conditions at the company’s plantations in Liberia and its suppliers in Indonesia. 2013 saw further allegations of poor labour conditions in its supply chain and EOS urged it to provide clarity on how it was investigating and assessing the steps taken to avoid similar issues in the future. EOS continued to raise these concerns in further calls and correspondence over several years, during which the company appeared to be responding positively to consider improved disclosure and stakeholder outreach. During a call in 2017 the company committed to disclosing its migrant worker management process in its sustainability report – a significant improvement on transparency. In 2018 EOS asked the company to align its labour standards programme and move to industry best practices by reporting in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. EOS reiterated this request during calls in 2019 with the head of sustainability.

ESGトピック
Diversity|Other governance
実行者
目標

Despite plenty of evidence that diversity improves company performance, progress has been slower than hoped for in many parts of the world. EOS seeks balanced boards at companies – composed of directors with technical skills aligned with the strategic needs and direction of the company and a diversity of perspectives. This may include across gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, background, skills and experience, to improve decision-making and avoid groupthink. Getting the board right is often the first step towards addressing social or environmental issues to which the company may be exposed, which is why it is a significant feature in EOS’s engagement. 

対象範囲およびプロセス

EOS engaged with a Chinese technology company that offers a range of services via communications and social media platforms. EOS initiated an engagement on board diversity with the company after strengthening its corporate governance principles for mainland China and Hong Kong at the start of 2019. In these principles EOS states that it assesses diversity at both the board and management levels to ensure that the leadership team has a suitable combination of talents.

In the first quarter of 2019, EOS met the company’s senior legal counsel and wrote to the chair to call attention to the amended Hong Kong Corporate Governance Code of July 2018. EOS made recommendations on how to specify talent search criteria to encourage fairer and non-discriminatory practices. It also asked the company to consider reflecting the customer base and business needs when selecting board directors, as a good portion of the company's gamers are women. EOS put its principles into action and recommended voting against a member of the nomination committee at the 2019 annual shareholder meeting. It communicated its voting recommendations and rationale to the company, ahead of the vote at a meeting in early May 2019.
