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."
Calvert has worked with The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment (US SIF) and the Ceres Investor Network (Ceres) to engage policymakers to make their position clear. Calvert will continue to track policy and regulatory developments and speak out when shareholder rights and progress on corporate sustainability are at stake.
