Public Engagement Report Q3 2021

The Public Engagement Report highlights some of the stewardship activities undertaken by EOS at Federated Hermes on behalf of its clients over Q3 2021. In this issue we take a more in-depth look at the climate crisis ahead of COP26.

In our opening article, Bruce Duguid, our head of stewardship, explains what’s at stake at the UN’s climate summit, and what we want to see from policymakers. COP26 is considered pivotal as it marks the first formal five-year review of emissions reduction commitments since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015. Here we set out how we are engaging with companies for net zero.    

Also in this issue:

  • China’s long and winding road to net zero – How can China, which is thought to account for over a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, align with the Paris Agreement?
  • Playing catch up – Japan has been a notable laggard on climate change and gender equality. How are we engaging with companies on these key topics?
  • Key trends from the emerging markets voting season
  • Battling the superbugs – Examining the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance and what animal health companies and food producers can do about it.
