SDG Engagement Equity commentary: Samsonite

The SDG Engagement Equity Fund focuses on attractive companies with the potential – through engagement aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – to generate outcomes that benefit people, the planet and investors. Here we demonstrate how we are engaging with current holding Samsonite to create positive impacts on the environment.

Over the period of our investment and engagement, we have met extensively with management, including the chair, CEO, sustainability director, research and innovation director and others. We have discussed a range of issues and have been encouraged at the progress made and ambition to do more.
