Describe how you select priority engagement topics to raise with companies and how you involve your clients in this process.
The engagement process is directed by the investor’s RI policy and strategy we analyse along with the client which are the most pressing topics and or issues to engage with and what the best strategy for the engagement is. Some of the topics that we engage in are:
ESG risk management
Bribery and corruption
Describe how you define the objectives and milestones of the engagements and how you involve your clients in this process.
Once we decide the topics along with the client we determine at what level the company is currently at (no information, low, medium or advanced) and we define where we’d like to see the company at and the time frame. In this manner we develop a working strategy and follow up process.
