Public Engagement Report Q3 2020

The Public Engagement Report highlights some of the stewardship activities undertaken by EOS at Federated Hermes on behalf of its clients over Q3 2020.

Our cover story this quarter looks at our reliance on nature and the ecosystem services that it provides, such as the provision of clean air, maintenance of the water cycle, climate regulation, pollination and nutrient-rich soils. Some sectors are almost completely dependent on these services, which are under threat as never before, with one million species at risk of extinction. We outline the value of biodiversity, the business case for its protection, and how we expect companies to respond.

Also in this issue:

  • Limited shelf-life? - Why the fast fashion model is under strain
  • Business purpose - Pandemic scrutiny brings purpose to the fore
  • A selection of short-form company case studies highlighting areas where we have completed objectives or can demonstrate significant progress
