Taking action on the things you care about
We understand that you want action on climate change, social inequality and bad corporate behaviour. So do we. That’s why we consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in our investment process.
Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we believe it can also be good for our members’ money. We believe that companies that look after their employees, manage their environmental impact and have robust governance should be in a better position to provide sustainable long-term returns.
The money we manage on your behalf and millions of other savers allows us to have influence on some of the world’s largest companies – for example, by voting on the appointment of CEOs and board chairs. Through our voting and engagement with companies, your money is having a positive impact.
We are also offering members some funds which invest more in companies taking positive steps, while investing less in companies with a worse ESG profile (for example, high-polluting coal miners).
In 2020 we influenced companies like Facebook, Boohoo, Nintendo and Samsung to tackle the impact they have on our climate and to change the way they manage their businesses.
