Our call for action over climate change

The sustainable investment team’s quarterly report includes updates on how we’ve been exercising our voting rights, which companies we’ve engaged with and our voting season 2021 outlook.

With the delayed 26th Conference of the Parties climate summit (COP26) scheduled to take place in November, climate action is top of the sustainable investing agenda this year.

The report delves into our activity over the period. This includes our chief executive’s letter to the UK’s largest companies asking them to publish detailed and fully costed transition plans on climate change. It also discusses our membership of the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative.
