Public Engagement Report Q2 2021

The Public Engagement Report highlights some of the stewardship activities undertaken by EOS at Federated Hermes on behalf of its clients over Q2 2021.

Our cover story this quarter looks at the threat to our oceans from overfishing, plastic pollution, temperature rises and chemical contaminants, and outlines why protecting and conserving the marine environment is essential for human life and the global economy. In the article, we set out five key engagement themes that most closely relate to ocean sustainability, including biodiversity and human rights, and explain how we engage with companies on these issues.  

Also in this issue:

  • Abate and switch: steel seeks low carbon solutions – What can steelmakers, and the miners in their supply chain, do to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement?
  • A watershed for climate change stewardship? – Key developments in 2021, including the IEA’s Net Zero by 2050 report and the Dutch court ruling in the Shell case.
  • Votes for change – A comprehensive round up of our activity this voting season, including votes on climate transition plans, racial equity audit proposals, and executive pay.
