Facilitating collaborative engagement on climate change

Engagement case study

Fast reading

  • Hermes EOS has actively engaged with some of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gasses, asking for development of more sustainable long-term business models, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and improved governance and disclosure.
  • With the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties over the next two weeks, we revisit our case study on the progress we have made over 2018-2019 in pursuit of climate-related engagement objectives, first published by the Principles for Responsible Investment in September this year.

Case studies are shown to demonstrate engagement, EOS does not make any investment recommendations and the information is not an offer to buy or sell securities.
