Over the last year, Calvert continued to engage agricultural companies about water risk. We led engagement with a large packaged food company on water risk in its agricultural supply chain. This is part of a broader investor engagement under the auspices of the UN PRI, including 36 investors with US$ 6 trillion in assets under management engaging 15 apparel, food and beverage, and agricultural products companies. The company published a list of its priority agricultural commodities, which will be the basis for further work to understand and address water risks in its supply chain through supplier standards and certified sustainably sourced commodities.

In 2018, Parametric became an independent signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment. Previously, we were a signatory through the affiliation with its parent company, EVC, which became a signatory in 2015.

As part of its ICCR participation, Calvert joined the Investors for Opioid Accountability (IOA) in November 2017, a month after its launch.

説明

          Calvert continued its collaborative relationship with George Serafeim, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, to publish "When Sustainable Practices Yield Sustainable Profits: The Path To A Strategic Edge" in 2019. As growing numbers of companies embrace sustainability practices, the question of whether those efforts can provide a competitive edge through strategic differentiation becomes increasingly important.

行動の頻度

説明

          Calvert had dialogue with several other companies about ESG disclosure broadly. As an active member of the Investor Advisory Group of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Calvert engaged three companies to encourage disclosure to SASB standards. With regards to active ownership, Parametric supports resolutions that encourage the board to improve relevant policies and disclosures as well as take action on certain matters. Calvert’s guiding principles are that businesses must adhere to internationally recognized labor and human rights standards; be transparent around corporate practices involving weapons, repressive governments, public health and product safety; maintain accountability for lobbying and political contributions; and set and report on environmental performance goals related to the firm's long-term strategy. With regards to portfolio construction, Parametric has also built-out an online reporting tool that displays key metrics relevant to the responsible investing criteria clients have applied to their portfolio. These metrics quantify the implementation of client-directed responsible investing goals and allow for greater investment transparency.

A component of Calvert's engagement strategy includes working with regulators and policymakers to ensure that officials are informed about Calvert’s position on critical issues. Both on their own, and as a part of larger coalitions, Calvert makes their voices heard. Issues we addressed in policy work included shareholder rights, Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs on the subject of "The Application of Environmental, Social, and Governance Principles in Investing and the Role of Asset Managers, Proxy Advisors, and Other Intermediaries." As well as, Clean Air and Nuclear Safety on the subject of "Reducing Emissions While Driving Economic Growth: Industry-led Initiatives."
