Global Emerging Markets: ESG Materiality, Q2 2019

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Hermes Global Emerging Markets’ ESG Materiality commentary – a quarterly publication that will demonstrate our engagement activity with portfolio companies and showcase holdings that are creating positive impact aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, we will explore an environmental, social and governance theme and its implications for the asset class.

Over the past decade, we have sought to act as responsible investors in the emerging-market equity space by focusing on companies that can tackle sustainability challenges as they arise. We recognise that developing markets have a long way to go in this respect, but as responsible investors, we can contribute to their evolution over time.

ESG Materiality, Q2 2019

• Engaging with The Foschini Group on ESG issues
• Will the new Mercosur-EU trade deal raise the risks of deforestation?
