Many of us are becoming more aware of our personal impact on the planet – from eating less meat to switching out of single-use plastic. But one of the biggest impacts as individuals that we can have is through our finances. Our savings and investments provide capital to companies – shouldn’t we therefore know what impact they’re having on people and the planet?
Our impact reports aim to show just that, by using a variety of different metrics, from carbon intensity to Board diversity. They also summarise and present the results of a key aspect of our work as a responsible investor – our engagement with companies to drive positive change in business practices.
