Sustainability framework

Advocate

We seek to lead the conversation on sustainable investing. A major focus of our work is to advocate for a transition that includes emerging markets and results in real-world carbon reduction.

How we advocate

Through advocacy, we seek to engage our clients and stakeholders on sustainability and encourage them on their journeys towards more sustainable long-term investing.

Our advocacy strategy is driven by a belief that asset managers have a role to play in transforming how business connects with society.

Developing the ecosystem for sustainable long-term investing.

Through engaging with companies as an integral part of our investment processes (see Invest), as well as through our broader advocacy initiatives including our work with industry bodies, thought leadership, education and policy contribution, we seek to play our part in accelerating the transition to a more sustainable way of thinking and acting.

Investments involve risk; losses may be made.
