In our January 2020 letter to portfolio companies we announced that we will be evaluating a company’s disclosure and performance against financially material environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics in a proactive and comprehensive manner, using our R-FactorTM scoring system.
In this paper we hope to explain our R-Factor screen, how we intend to engage with companies on their ESG disclosure and practices, and the potential voting action that may result from this process. For further information on R-FactorTM and its scoring methodology we recommend reviewing literature on our website at ssga.com/esg/rfactor-score.
