A Meaningful Earth Day: Thoughts from Our Asset Stewardship Team
While many companies have provided projected timelines for reaching net-zero emissions, we think decarbonization is much more complex than just timing. Our climate stewardship efforts include looking deeply at companies’ clean energy goals to determine the “how” of their plans, the specific details of their guideposts, and potential social costs.
The administration of President Joseph Biden is expected to shift the ESG investment landscape through a greater focus on climate change, a new leadership team at the Department Labor, an increased need for companies to perform strong ESG disclosure and other changes.
We launched our first ESG mandate in 1985 and were pioneers in low-carbon investing. Today, with a presence in Boston, London, Krakow, Bangalore and Tokyo, our dedicated ESG team brings expertise in ESG research, investment strategy, asset stewardship and data analytics to every investment challenge.
