We regularly give client presentations on how we integrate ESG within our investment process. We also focus on the companies' ESG or sustainability initiatives when we host client asset tours.
We emailed all portfolio holdings who scored relatively poorly on sustainability disclosure. Screening was based on GRESB survey and public disclosure data. For underachievers we checked the data and where applicable we contacted the company.
We also contacted all portfolio holdings where females represent less than 30% of the Board.
All companies responded to our emails. In the majority of the cases the companies are planning to improve sustainability disclosure and / or female board representation (over time). In a number of cases our emails were discussed at board level of the companies.
We spoke at an investor conference and highlighted the sustainability initiatives one of our portfolio companies has undertaken, particularly with regard to energy efficiency.
Every quarter we publish in our client quarterly report an ESG section detailing our views on different topics.
Furthermore, we use media to telegraph our views, particularly with regards to corporate governance practices.
