Global Emerging Markets: ESG Materiality, Q1 2021

In this edition of our ESG Materiality Newsletter, we provide an overview of our engagement activities, as well as case studies demonstrating the progress we have made with portfolio companies. We also delve into an environmental, social and governance (ESG) theme, and its implications for the Emerging Markets asset class.

In the Q1 2021 newsletter, we explore:

  • How we are engaging with Baozun Inc, a leading Chinese provider of ecommerce technology and solutions;
  • How our portfolio holding Tech Mahindra Ltd is generating a positive impact aligned to several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs);
  • Whether palm oil can ever be considered sustainable, and what responsible investors need to do to advocate change.
